Sokhumi hopes that other Latin American countries will follow the suit of Venezuela, which recognized the independency of Abkhazia and South Ossetia today, stated Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia - RIA Novosti.


"We have always looked at Venezuela and some other countries of Latin America with hope. The delegation of Abkhazia is currently staying in Caracas. It visited Cuba, Nicaragua, and everywhere was met with cordial welcome and ardent support of our independency. We were waiting for that event [recognition by Venezuela]", he said.

Answering to the question whether other Latin American countries, in particular, Cuba and Bolivia, recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia, Shamba mentioned at all the meetings with Abkhazian delegation was said "if Venezuela recognizes Abkhazia and South Ossetia, a cascade of recognitions may follow".

"Surely, I don't want to overtake the events, we'll see later," he concluded.
