Irakli Sesiashvili, Chairman of the Parliamentary Defense and Security Committee said that the Georgian government was closely observing the developments in the occupied Abkhazia region.
Sesiashvili said it was important that the situation was peaceful in Abkhazia and that Georgia would use all the available mechanisms to involve the international community in the ongoing processes in the occupied region.
“It is important to evade escalation of the tension but the current situation gives us the ground to say that Russia cannot control the situation. It only controls its own interests. The case has to do with the occupation. Our co-citizens live in Abkhazia,” Sesiashvili said.
On January 9, dozens of demonstrators broke into the authorities’ headquarters in occupied Abkhazia and demanded resignation of de-facto President Raul Khajimba. The shooting was heard in the morning in Sukhumi at the Administration of de-facto President of occupied region of Abkhazia.
