Deputy Director for European Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. Schott was unaware of Ecuador's potential decision to
recognize the independence of the Georgian separatist regions of
Abkhazia and South Ossetia. He will consult with colleagues about
the possibility of raising the issue with Ecuador. He said that
Chile is comfortable sharing its reasons for not recognizing the
regions, but other countries are free to make their own decision.
