RA MFA: dialogue between Sukhum and Tbilisi will become possible only after signing a document on the non-use of military force against each other
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia issued a statement.

Sukhum. January 17. Apsnypress. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia drew attention to reaction of Georgian officials regarding proposals on the need to start a dialogue between the two countries, received from some socio-political figures of Abkhazia.
 
 As stated in the message  “In this regard, we cannot fail to note the surprise that we received from the information about the sudden readiness of the Georgian authorities to start a direct dialogue with the Abkhaz side. In turn, we support the possibility of resuming the bilateral format of negotiations, which include a discussion of the problems of isolation of the Republic of Abkhazia, regional security, the environment and other issues that are directly related to the theme of humanitarian cooperation.
 
 At the same time, we especially note that the topic of the political status of our state, based on the will of the people of Abkhazia and enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia, is not the subject of any negotiations.
 
 It should be recalled that the Republic of Abkhazia led a negotiation process with Georgia under the auspices of the UN, with mediation of Russia and several other countries from 1994 to 2008. Abkhazia acted as a party of conflict in this negotiation format, which had a positive effect on the achievement of certain political and diplomatic results.
 
 Subsequently, as a result of the armed conflict in South Ossetia in 2008 and the subsequent recognition by the Russian Federation of the independence of the Republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia there were opened Geneva International Discussions on Security and Stability in the Caucasus, which are the most important international forum to ensure the predictability of the situation in the region, as well as maintaining the political dialogue of Abkhazia and South Ossetia with Georgia. This format involves representatives of Abkhazia, Georgia, South Ossetia, Russia, the United States under the co-chairmanship of the EU, UN and OSCE. We consider the dialogue within the framework of the Geneva discussions useful and support its continuation.
 
 Taking into account the foregoing, we consider it necessary to note that the process of normalizing relations between the two states and discussing the feasibility of other forms of dialogue between Sukhum and Tbilisi will become possible only after signing a document legally obliging the parties not to use military force against each other.
