Georgia condemns Belarusian leader’s trip to breakaway area of Abkhazia

(MENAFN) Georgia on Wednesday condemned Belarusian Leader Aleksandr Lukashenko’s visit to its breakaway region of Abkhazia.

“This is an unacceptable violation of Georgia’s Law on Occupied Territories and of the principles of our bilateral relations and international law,” President Salome Zourabichvili shared on Twitter.

The Foreign Ministry also strongly convicted Lukashenko’s trip and his conference with senior Russian officials in Sokhumi.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia condemns the violation of the Georgian state border by Aleksandr Lukashenko with his so-called visit to the occupied Abkhazia region, which blatantly infringes the fundamental principles and norms of international law,” it added.

The ministry pleaded that Belarus value the sovereignty and regional integrity of Georgia within its globally-recognized frontiers and not take actions that oppose the fundamental principles of international law.
