Establishing economic ties with Georgia will not be unilateral, because the Georgian side does not want to contact us in this format. Official Tbilisi believes that even if they enter into such a dialogue, it will mean the recognition of Abkhazia as a state — said the so-called occupier of Abkhazia. Secretary of the Security Council Sergei Shamba in an interview with the news agency sputnik-abkhazia.
«Economic ties with Georgia were severed at the legislative level during Bagapsh. In my opinion, this was not the right decision. We have repeatedly asked the Russian Duma to help us restore economic ties with a neighboring country. However, we have no progress in this direction. «If the Georgian side enters the talks, we will only welcome this issue,» Shamba said
