Sokhumi promises to take measures over detention of Turkish vessel

2009-08-18 13:05

Yesterday the Georgian side detained BUKET, the vessel carrying over 3000 tons of petrol and 775 tons of diesel fuel from Turkey to Abkhazia. It has been the third such case in 2009.


The Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia believes it to be the continuation of Georgia's policy on destabilization of situation in the region and promises to take "proportional measures" - RIA Novosti.

The Ministry accuses Georgian authorities of "using all the methods of political and economic pressure on Abkhazia". Today's statement says these actions are conducted with the presence of international monitors on the backdrop. "The absence of adequate assessment from the world community side is regarded by the Abkhazian side as the purposeful encouragement of Georgia's aggressive policy, which may lead to tension escalation", the document says.

Georgia regards Abkhazia as own territory and sees delivery of goods to Abkhazia by sea without Tbilisi's permission as illegal action.
