The Special representative of Georgian government on relations with Russia David Zurab Abashidze assessed the visit to Sukhumi planned by Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as a “violation of Georgia's sovereignty”, reports TASS.
The future visit was also assessed by the Deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia David Dzhalagania who called it “ignoring international principles and laws”.
“This is another obvious attempt to encroach on the sovereignty of Georgia,” Dzhalagania added.
Earlier some media sources reported there was a message that Lavrov will visit Abkhazia with a two-day working visit on Tuesday. On April 18, the Minister will take part in the official opening ceremony of a new complex of buildings of the Russian embassy in Abkhazia, and on April 19 he will hold talks with Abkhazian President Raul Khajimba and Foreign Minister of the Republic of Daur Cove.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine and Georgia condemned Russian aggression. Foreign ministers Klimkin and Dzhanelidze visited Poland for bilateral negotiations.
