SUKHUM, November 9 (Itar-Tass) — The Republic of Abkhazia will not let into its territory any international monitoring organisations, and this position will remain unchanged, a press release published on Wednesday by Abkhazia’s presidential department of information reads.
The press release says that “not being a party of the negotiations process between Russia and Georgia on the RF’s joining the WTO, Abkhazia nevertheless had consultations on the issue with Russian counterparts.”
“We may state, that having agreed to an international auditing in its own territory, the Russian Federation by no means doubted the state sovereignty of the Republic of Abkhazia or the act of recognition of Abkhazia’s independence,” the department said in its statement.
At the same time, “government of the Republic of Abkhazia is adamant there will not be any limitations or inconveniences for normal trans-border functioning of Abkhazia’s businesses.”
“These matters have been discussed regularly on the diplomatic level with our Russian counterparts,” the document reads.
