SUKHUM, May 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Cooperation in the area of Abkhazia’s socio-economic development and legislative activities were in focus at a Tuesday meeting between Abkhazian President Alexander Ankvab and Russian president’s aide Vladislav Surkov.
The Russian delegation, which includes members of both houses of the Russian parliament, the State Duma and the Federation Council, had meetings with Abkhazian lawmakers to discuss cooperation in lawmaking activities and key tasks in the area of Abkhazia’s security and socio-economic development and ways to solve these tasks, the press service of the Abkhazian parliament said.
Russian lawmakers stressed they “respected Abkhazia’s sovereignty and independence and called for closer integration in all spheres of relations,” the press service noted.
Surkov was appointed presidential aide in late 2013 and is in charge of Russia’s relations with Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
