Replying to a question of a Georgian journalist, saying Sukhum has allegedly criticised the draft agreement, Lukashevich said he had not heard such statements from the Abkhazian side.
“The document we are developing continues our mutual relations’ strengthening practice at the state level,” the diplomat said. This document complies with international practice, the more so that Russia ensures security of the Republic of Abkhazia under previously concluded agreements.
Lukashevich said the new Russian-Abkhazian agreement will not affect the formats of negotiations on the situation in Transcaucasia. “I see no relation whatsoever between the work on this bilateral document, Geneva talks on Transcaucasia and dialogue between Russian State Secretary, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Georgian president’s special envoy Zurab Abashidze, the more so that they have recently met in Prague to discuss this issue,” Lukashevich said.
