According to Article 53 of the Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia, the President of the country determines the main foreign political directions. In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Abkhazia "On the coordinating role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Abkhazia in the implementation of the common foreign policy" dated November 6, 2006, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia is the main coordinating body regarding relations with foreign states and international organizations, exercises general control over the implementation of international obligations of our Republic, pursues the foreign policy of the President of the country.

One of the basic objectives of the Ministry, according to the Decree, is to ensure a unified and coordinated foreign policy of our state. According to the approved coordinating role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the executive authorities are obliged to inform the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about their international activities and any international contacts: official trips, consultations and negotiations, documents to be signed and other agreements.

I would like to emphasize that work in this direction is going to be intensified. For the purpose of practical implementation of the provisions of the Decree, the Ministry has approved a system of coordination and interaction between the Foreign Ministry and state authorities. Specific instructions were given to employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, who will carry out direct interaction with executive authorities, regional and municipal administrations.

We do not doubt the professionalism of our colleagues, who are aware of the systemic importance of coordinated work to ensure a common coordinated foreign policy of the Republic of Abkhazia. We expect that the executive authorities will pay close attention to this important aspect and, in accordance with the current regulations, will provide our department with maximum support. The efficiency of our foreign policy will be determined by the unity and coordination of our actions.
