In the course of the joint press-conference with the ICAO officials, Georgian Ambassador to the USA Batu Kutelia demanded that the member-countries of the organization should give up any flights to the airport of Sukhum.
"The first thing to be stressed by ICAO was the fact that the organization assigned no codes to Abkhazia. As to the flights, they were said to be contradicting Chicago Convention and our demands to ICAO are based upon these grounds. ICAO is an organization basing upon the UN principles where a country's sovereignty is the basic governing factor", - he underlined.
Earlier, Director of the Sukhum International Airport Republican Unitary Enterprise Vyacheslav Eshba reported that the airport of Sukhum has not been officially opened so far and does not perform any regular passenger transportation; however, the airport is servicing certain charter flights under contract.
