11369.jpegEuropean Union Special Representative in the South Caucasus Peter Semneby has visited Sukhum, Apsnypress reports.


Meetings with President Sergey Bagapsh and Prime Minister Sergey Shamba were held in the capital of Abkhazia.
"We are ready to cooperate but Europe, which is still influenced by Stalin's policy, is so far unready to treat us in a civilized way, constantly creating barriers and limitations", - Shamba said.

In the opinion of Peter Semneby, the situation with Abkhazia is "unusual".

"Our position in this respect is rather clear: on one hand, it's non-recognition but on the other hand, it's the recognition of the fact that there are people with their troubles and goals living there, which we have to realize", - EU special representative underlined.

In his opinion, despite political discrepancies, there are many important fields for cooperation, such as criminality control, for instance.

The president of Abkhazia stressed the fact that "the atmosphere created lately around the Georgian-Abkhaz settlement in the context of the European political structures and U.S. Senate's reaction to the declarations of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili forces Abkhazia to significantly correct its position".

This covers possible cooperation between the Abkhaz side and European structures not only in political but in humanitarian field as well.
