Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia

Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia
18 April 2017 603
Recently, the "angry" statements of Georgian officials – starting from officials of the Georgian Foreign Ministry to the President - in connection with the upcoming working visit of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to the Republic of Abkhazia have increased. It was said about the "illegality" of the Russian Foreign Ministry's visit to Abkhazia and, of course, about the "territorial integrity of Georgia".

The MFA of Abkhazia considers such "condemning" comments by Georgian officials regarding the visit of Sergey Lavrov to Abkhazia as completely inappropriate.

This working visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Abkhazia fully meets the character of the Abkhaz-Russian interstate relations and is consistent with the norms of international law. It should be reminded that diplomatic relations between Abkhazia and Russia were established on September 9, 2008.

We urge the Georgian side to stop deceiving themselves and the international community by juggling with the outdated notion of "territorial integrity of Georgia" and recognize the existing political realities in the region.
