As reported by the Rosbalt, Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze stated at a briefing in Tbilisi that Georgia "had successfully introduced preventive measures to prevent the appearance of the Finnish building company Honka in the occupied Abkhazia".
"We took an active part in the prevention of this issue. Georgia's ambassador to Finland had held consultations with representatives of the company. As it turned out, the representatives of Honka did not know that there are limitations for the conduct of affairs in the occupied regions of Georgia without the consent of the Georgian side", Kalandadze said.
The Deputy Minister noted that "the company had expressed its regret at not being informed in time", the edition reported. According to her, they "denied the information that allegedly Honka was going to open a representative office in the occupied territories and that the delegation of the company was going to visit Abkhazia".
Recently, according to the Lenta.ru, it was reported that the firm had signed a distribution agreement with the government of the republic. The document was signed by Senior Vice President of the Honka Risto Kilkki and the head of the Trade Representation of Russia in the Abkhazian Oleg Bartsits. The Ambassador of Abkhazia to the Russian Federation Igor Ahban stated that Honka would become "one of the first Western companies" which had decided to do business in the country.
