The tiny Pacific Ocean state of Tuvalu reportedly has recognised Georgia's breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states. 
Maxim Gundjia, the foreign minister in Abkhazia's separatist government, said that Tuvalu's Prime Minister Willy Telavi and his Abkhaz counterpart Sergei Shamba signed the agreement to establish diplomatic relations with Sukhumi on September 18. 
South Ossetian leader Eduard Kokoity on September 23 said that Tuvalu's recognition of South Ossetia was a "courageous and determined step." 
There has so far been no independent confirmation of the move from Tuvalu. 
Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and the Pacific island of Nauru had previously recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia. 
Earlier this year, a third Pacific state, Vanuatu, said it also recognized Abkhazia, but soon afterwards reversed its decision. However, Abkhaz authorities and the Vanuatu government's official website say the recognition remains in force.

I never heard of Tuvalu before nor do I care about them. Azerbaijan stand with Georgia united! Abkhazia and South Ossetia are eternal Georgian lands and Karabakh is ancient Azerbaijani land..

Sorry, but you are very mistaken. Abkhazia and Ossetia (Alania) was never a part of anything called Georgia. In fact, there was never a credible state called Georgia ever in history. Look up the facts. As for Abkhazia, I advise you to read the truth about who they are from sites like

This lie of the Kartvali people must stop!
