SUKHUM, June 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Abkhazia’s acting President Valery Bganba has said the republic is not planning to sign new agreements with Russia.
“Time is getting on. Things are changing. Now I see no reason to do this,” Bganba told a news briefing on Monday.
“It is necessary to implement the agreements that were reached earlier,” he said, adding that “Abkhazia and Russia concluded over 80 agreements”.
Earlier in the day, Bganba said Abkhazian Prime Minister Leonid Lakerbaya had resigned.
“Vladimir Delba will be appointed acting premier,” he said.
“Under our legislation, the government, including the defense minister, will resign jointly with its head,” Bganba said.
