Russia's recognition of the independence of Abhazia and South Ossetia represent a regrettable and legally ungrounded unilateral act, the Romanian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

In a news release, the ministry reiterates the importance, for the regional stability and security, to observe the fundamental principles of the international law.

It also said that Romania, as EU and NATO member, will continue to activate within the bodies as well as on a bilateral level, together with other countries in the region, to regulate the situation in Georgia.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced on Tuesday that Russia recognized the independence of the two separatist territories in Georgia, Abhazia and South Ossetia, adding that he had already signed two decrees in this respect.

He also called on other states to recognize the independence of the Georgian separatist republics.

Moscow's standing representative with NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, said that the recognition of the independence of South Ossetia and Abhazia proves that Russia does not plan to annex the two territories.
