KARIN – Abkhaz President Raul Khajimba confirmed that Syria’s recognition of the sovereignty of Abkhazia is of great importance to his country.

“The recognition of our country’s independence by Syria is of great importance to Abkhazia,” Khajimba said at a ceremony in the Abkhaz capital, Sukhum. “There is a lot of future work ahead of us. It is necessary to prepare joint documents between the two countries. I am sure that the Abkhaz and Syrian sides will carry out a qualitative work in this direction. I hope that we will meet with the Syrian leadership in the near future. ”
Khajimba pointed out that Syria’s recognition of the sovereignty of Abkhazia is a bold and decisive step, pointing out that there are areas where Syria and Abkhazia can cooperate effectively, which allows for the development and enhancement of cooperation between the two countries, pointing out the need to carry out work aimed at bringing the Abkhaz diaspora closer to Syria.
“The recognition of the independence of Abkhazia by the Syrian Arab Republic will continue to be a very important event in the history of the Abkhaz people,” said the minister of the settlement of the Abkhaz diaspora Beslan Dabbar.
“Syria has been fighting terrorism for more than seven years and now the Syrian people have won and the Russian Federation has made a great contribution to this victory, so Syria’s recognition of our republic is a great event and we congratulate everyone on this event,” he said.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants announced last Tuesday the agreement between Syria and Abkhazia and South Ossetia to exchange recognition and establish diplomatic relations at the level of an embassy. (AA)
