Russia's State Duma to Discuss Current Relations with Abkhazia

A committee of international affairs with the Russian parliament's lower house, the State Duma, will discuss on Thursday the state and perspectives of Russian and Abkhaz relations

Russia's State Duma to Discuss Current Relations with Abkhazia

The closed session will be attended by Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin, said committee's vice chairman Leonid Slutsky.

"The discussions will focus among other things on the forthcoming ratification of a bilateral agreement between Moscow and Sukhumi on stimulation and mutual protection of capital investments," Slutsky said.

A corresponding draft agreement with South Ossetia was introduced to the State Duma on October 15.

Russia recognized former Georgian republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states two weeks after a five-day war with Georgia in August 2008, which began when Georgian forces attacked South Ossetia in an attempt to bring it back under central control.

Since then, Russia has deployed thousands of troops and border guards to the two regions, which Georgia considers part of its sovereign territory.
