On Thursday, Ankvab met with the Swiss delegation headed by the head of the Department of Humanitarian Aid under the Swiss Foreign Ministry Manuel Bessler in Sukhum. In Abkhazia, the partner of the Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland on humanitarian programs is the Danish Refugee Council.
At the meeting Ankvab stated he was dissatisfied by the activities of international organizations in Abkhazia. He stressed that Abkhazia needs serious economic support, since "the war has left a very heavy footprint everywhere, in every field".
According to Ankvab, representatives of international organizations do not always objectively assess the current situation in Abkhazia, which "has already changed dramatically, both politically and economically".
Recall, in early October the opposition coalition "Georgian Dream", which had won in the parliamentary election in Georgia, announced its readiness to start negotiations with South Ossetia and Abkhazia bypassing Russia.
According to the leader of the "Georgian Dream" Bidzina Ivanishvili, his coalition is planning to soften the current Georgian legislation governing relations with two unrecognized republics, considered by Tbilisi the "Russian-occupied territories".
