Abkhazia requests the world community to use proper definitions

2009-08-13 17:10

Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia urges international humanitarian organisations to respect the legacy of Abkhazian people and use proper definitions, the statement of Abkhazian Foreign Minister Sergey Shamba claims - Novosti-Gruzia.


The foreign Ministry states that on October 31st 2008 the official address of the Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia requested to use correct spelling of Abkhazian toponyms and be polite, but even after that international organizations use collocations like "de-facto authorities", "breakaway Georgian region", "Abkhaz separatists", and also misspelled toponyms in their reports.

The Foreign Minister of Abkhazia called on international organisations to stick to neutral and grounded position in the choice of definitions.

"Despite repeated official addresses of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, they continue using definitions, contradicting contemporary political realities and denying the existence of Abkhazia as a state, in their official documents", the Minister's statement says.

Shamba draws attention of international organisations representatives, including the UN subdivisions and partners, to the latest report of the UN Secretary General on the situation in the conflict area (S/2009/254 - May 18th 2009 ), in which all the definitions depreciating the status of the Republic of Abkhazia as an independent state, are omitted.
