Georgia–Vanuatu relations are diplomatic and consular relations between Georgia and Vanuatu. on July 12, 2013 Georgia and Vanuatu signed the establishment of relations that Vanuatu recognizes Georgia's entirety.[citation needed]


Apart of Russia, Georgia’s breakaway regions have been recognized by Nicaragua, Venezuela, Nauru, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.[1]

In March, 2013 Vanuatu’s Foreign Ministry denied setting up of diplomatic ties with Abkhazia. In May President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili met Prime Minister of Vanuatu, Moana Carcasses Kalosil, in Chiang Mai and thanked him for his government’s decision to retract recognition of breakaway Abkhazia.

In June 2011, Vanuatu’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Donald Kalpokas, strongly denied Abkhazia's claims that it had been recognized by Vanuatu.[2] “the Republic of Vanuatu recognizes territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders, including its regions - the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia,” according to the Georgian Foreign Ministry.[3]
