(MENAFN) The Georgian administration urged its “brothers” in its breakaway districts of Abkhazia and South Ossetia to work with it to construct a solitary, peaceful self-governing state.
In an announcement marking the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the Abkhazia conflict, Premier Irakli Garibashvili stated that his administration is in favor of a peaceful solution to the nation’s longstanding difficulties with regional integrity.
Garibashvili stated that “I firmly believe that our peace policy, oriented towards mutual respect and dialogue, brings closer the day when we, together with our Abkhaz and Ossetian brothers, will continue to build a single, strong, peace-loving, democratic state that will create all the conditions for maintaining and strengthening the security, well-being and identity of every citizen.”
He went further on, “The most dramatic event in our recent history, the confrontation between brothers, brought unjustified destruction, turned hundreds of thousands of people into refugees in their own homeland, and, the saddest thing, claimed the lives of many of our fellow citizens on both sides – soldiers and civilians.”
