The Georgian Foreign Ministry voiced grave concerns about Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko’s visit to the occupied Abkhazia region and his meeting with the leadership of the Abkhazian de facto administration in Sokhumi.
The travel to occupied Abkhazia, according to the ministry, “grossly breaches the fundamental principles and norms of international law.”
“We call on the Belarusian side to respect the territorial integrity of the sovereign state within its internationally recognized borders and not to pursue measures that defy fundamental norms of international law,” the statement said.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry summoned the Ambassador of Belarus to Georgia following the visit of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to the occupied Abkhazia region. As previously reported, Alexander Lukashenko arrived in occupied Abkhazia and met with its de facto leader Aslan Bzhania in Bichvinta.
