Armenia plans to occupy Abkhazia? Georgian intelligentsia accuses Armenians of genocide of GeorgiansMikhail Saakashvili recognize the genocide committed by Armenians in Georgia.
They say that in 1993, the Bagramyan military unit, together with Abkhazians, fought against the Georgian army and killed Georgians living in Abkhazia: Before the Czar, Russia populated Georgian Javakheti with Armenians, there had been no single Armenian in that region. However, today Javakheti is mentioned as part of Armenia. Having crippled the Georgian monuments in the territory of Javakheti, the Armenians are not trying to convince everybody that they are Armenian. All this is being done systematically, and so, must be recognized as a genocide against the Georgian nation.
Member of the Supreme Council of Abkhazia in exile Akaky Gasviani supports this initiative and points out that the Armenians have a big role in the occupation of Georgian lands and the establishment of the separatist regime in Abkhazia.
The Golos Armenii daily publishes the abridged version of the article What Is Armenia Plotting Against Georgia, published in the Aisi daily (Georgia) (#36, Oct 3-9 2006). Golos Armenii says that the article tells how Armenians populated Abkhazia and Ajaria and what the atrocities the Bagramyan battalion committed during the war against the Georgians. "Journalist Gogneli quotes some expert on Armenian problems as saying: If anybody thinks that the Russians will appropriate Abkhazia, he is mistaken. Should they – God forbid recognize Abkhazia as an independent, the Armenians will occupy this region in just one year. Today, they are silent and are just waiting for a good opportunity. But as soon as it happens, they will rise and appropriate this Georgian region. Today, they are trying to occupy Abkhazia’s sea coast they are actively working in this direction. Then, they will take care of Javakheti and, finally, they will get access to the sea. This is a part of their Great Armenia plan. So, we, the Georgians, must be vigilant and wise. I wonder if our leadership is thinking about it?"The Azg daily says that, neither in the Georgian mass media nor via its own sources in Georgia, has it managed to find anything that could prove the information of the Georgian daily. Asked by Azg to comment on the statement, Ambassador of Georgia to Armenia Revaz Gachechiladze said that he knows nothing about such a statement and, even if it was made, he, first of all, wants to know the names of its authors. In any case, this is not the position of the Georgian Government.
