2009-09-10 18:09

Today Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia, discussed actions of Georgian border guards in Black Sea with Pierre Morel [the EU] and Johan Verbeke [the UN], the co-chairmen of Geneva Talks -


He reported of numerous provocations from the Georgian side and commented upon the situation with BUKET vessel.

"If diplomatic methods will bring no result, the Abkhazian side reserves the right to take adequate measures. All the responsibility for complication of the situation in the sea will rest on the Georgian side", the Minister said.

He added that aggressive actions of the Georgian side made Abkhazia start military cooperation with Russia.

Shamba asked his interlocutors to inform the Georgian side that according to international law actions of its border guards can be regarded as piracy.

He highlighted that the Abkhaz side will insist on return of the ship and the cargo, and "if diplomatic steps bring no results, we'll seek other solutions. We believe in that case no condemnation of our actions must follow".

Pierre Morel underlined the EU was aware of the problem. In august two meetings - in Ergneti and Gali - were held, and in his view, it proves there is sense to work further in this field.
