2009-12-24 17:01

Georgian refugees will be able to return to Abkhazia only when legal basis for their return is settled, stated Sergey Lavrov, the Foreign Minister of Russia - RosBalt.


"This issue is mentioned in Medvedev-Sarkozy plan,- he noted. - It's written in the document that beside priority issues of security, issues of refugees are agreed to be discussed in Geneva, in accordance with international norms and practice of post-conflict settlement".

Lavrov's Abkhazian counterpart Shamba underlined that since Georgia's quitting the Moscow Agreement, Abkhazia has no obligations to return refugees to own territory.

"When Abkhazia unilaterally started returning people, Georgian authorities overtly said they aren't interested in it till Georgia's jurisdiction over the republic is established," he said.
