NATO criticizes Putin visit to occupied Abkhazia

Publish Time 2017-08-09 12:16:00


NATO rebuked Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday for visiting the breakaway Georgian region of Abkhazia on the ninth anniversary of a brief war over the territory and another disputed region, South Ossetia, Politico Europe reports. 

Putin met Tuesday with the president of Abkhazia, Raul Khadzhimba, in the Black Sea resort town of Pitsunda, and a NATO spokesman in Brussels quickly denounced the Russian leader’s move.

“President Putin’s visit to the Abkhazia region of Georgia — on the ninth anniversary of the armed conflict — is detrimental to international efforts to find a peaceful and negotiated settlement,” the spokesman, Dylan White, said in a statement. “We regret that this visit was carried out without prior consent of the Georgian authorities.”
