Abkhazia shouldn’t align itself with Kosovo – political scientist2010-07-26 17:16
Irakli Hintba, the political scientist, is sure that decision of the UN International Court on Kosovo will play a positive role in the fate of Abkhazia - Apsnypress.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"This decision, though of recommendation character, in fact legitimizes the practice of secession against the will of metropolitan country, and it's a serious event in global political practice. In this way the conclusion of the International Court highlights precendentness of Kosovo case for Abkhazia and South Ossetia," he said.
Yet he called on not to see the cases of Abkhazia and Kosovo as equal. In his view, Abkhazia managed to create institutions of the modern state and form basics of economic development in heard conditions of isolation and blockade. At the same time Kosovo, with significant support of the EU and the USA generally failed to do it and can now hardly be called a state.
"Abkhazia has a way to reach international recognition, which must be based on fortified reforms on political and economic modernization of the country, creation of favourable international image, and new approaches to settling conflict with Georgia," Hintba said.
