Daur Kove made a speech at the round table as a speaker. At the beginning of his report the Abkhazian Foreign Minister turned to the historical ties of the Abkhaz and Jewish peoples mentioning the formation of the Jewish community and the formation of the synagogue in Abkhazia.

He dwelled in detail on the legal aspects of the state independence of the Republic of Abkhazia noting that the people of Abkhazia exercised their right to self-determination in the form of an independent state and since 1993 Abkhazia has confidently embarked on the path of the revival of an independent democratic state.

The report also mentioned the problems that the republic faces in carrying out its foreign policy activities:

"Most foreign medias use information about our country from Georgian sources which for certain reasons cannot be neutral. It is very important for us to make objective information about Abkhazia available. It is important for us to convey the truth about Abkhazia to the broader international community. However, the possibilities of our country are limited. "

At the end of his speech the foreign minister of Abkhazia answered the questions of the participants who showed interest to the situation in the republic.

During his trip to Israel the Abkhazian Foreign Minister held a number of working meetings including with Alon Davidi, the Mayor of the city and with Alexander Shane, the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Israel.
