NATO is unable to resolve the dispute between Georgia and Abkhazia and
its actions aggravate tensions in the region, the Abkhazian Foreign
Ministry said on Thursday, RIA Novosti reports.
The statement came in response to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's
recent resolution on Georgia, which called Abkhazia and South Ossetia
NATO is seeking to distort the facts of the August 2008 war between
Russia and Georgia over South Ossetia and shift the viewpoint on these
events, the ministry said.
"The Abkhazian party considers this biased interpretation of the
events yet another manifestation of NATO's pro-Georgian position," the
"NATO is an organization that has been contributing to the intensive
militarization of Georgia for many years, stirring up the revanchist
mindset of the Georgian leadership, which led to the August 2008
bloodshed in South Ossetia."
Moscow recognized the independence of Abkhazia and another former
Georgian republic, South Ossetia after the five-day war and has since
been the guarantor of their security, deploying thousands of troops
and border guards to the republics.
