Abkhaz Security Council secretary: Wounded Georgian servicemen are taken out of Kodori Gorge
The problem of Kodori Gorge was settled until recently and will be settled in a political field and by diplomatic means, Abkhaz Security Council Secretary Stanislav Lakoba said speaking at the International Press Center in Sokhumi. At that Lakoba stressed that discussion of the problem of Kodori Gorge does not come easy, but importance and serious nature of the problem is indisputable.
As a REGNUM correspondent quotes Lakoba as saying, the situation in the gorge is tense. Georgian servicemen are being taken out of it, he said reminding that there has always been a confrontation with local Svan population as well. Stanislav Lakoba believes that the question of Kodori Gorge will be determined by the current geopolitical situation and the reality they have in South Caucasus, especially after a known Putin’s statement (probably, the matter concerns the Munich speech of the Russian president). So, it is a part of a chain and it cannot be taken out of the global context, Lakoba believes.
