Abkhazia not to be admitted to Russian Federation

The former Georgian autonomy, Abkhazia, which claimed its independence from Georgia as a result of bloody ethnic armed conflict in the early 90s will not be admitted to the Russian Federation, Russian Ambassador to Georgia Vladimir Chkhikvishvili told the media on Thursday.

"Russia admits no possibility of Abkhazia's joining the Russian Federation in any status," Chkhikvishvili said.

"The Abkhaz problem should be solved on the basis of Georgia's territorial integrity with due account taken of Abkhazia's interests," the diplomat said adding that this is Russia's official stance.
