(09-24) 04:00 PDT Sukhumi, Georgia -- Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the lush region of Abkhazia was a playground of the Soviet elite.

Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev and Mikhail Gorbachev all had opulent summer homes along its shores. Soviet holidaymakers crowded its beaches, and the boardwalk of the capital, Sukhumi, was renowned for its nightlife.

Locals like to say that when he met Khrushchev in Abkhazia, Cuban President Fidel Castro raved that its beauty matched that of his homeland.

Today's Abkhazia is a far cry from its halcyon days. More than a decade after a devastating war with Georgia over its post-Soviet status, the tiny self-declared state is a ...

Abkhazia strong enough to repel fresh aggression from Georgia - official

SUKHUMI. Sept 14 (Interfax) - The Abkhazian armed forces are strong enough to repel another aggression by Georgia, Deputy Defense Minister of the breakaway republic Garry Kupalba told reporters in Sukhumi on Thursday.

"We have a well-equipped battle-worthy army capable of repelling an aggression," he said.

"There is a huge difference between our armed forces today and what they were in 1992 or even 2000," Kupalba said.

He noted that defense remained the center of the republic's armed forces concept.

"During the last armed standoff between the Swani rebel detachment of Emzar Kvitsiani and Georgian troops in the upper part of the Kodori Gorge, we observed neutrality, which proved to be the right thing to do, although we ...

UN urges Georgia not to 'provoke'
Georgian troops in Kodori Gorge
Georgian troops entered the Kodori Gorge in July
The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution urging Georgia to refrain from provocative action in the breakaway region of Abkhazia.

The resolution also renewed the mandate of a UN mission in Abkhazia which began after the region split in the 1990s.

Tensions rose in July when Georgian troops entered Abkhazia's remote Kodori Gorge to drive out a rebel militia.

Russia had urged a stronger resolution to criticise Georgia for its presence in the Kodori Gorge.

'Legitimate government'

The Georgian government has been consolidating its position in the upper part of the Kodori Gorge, the only area of Abkhazia which it controls, says the BBC's Matthew Collin in Tbilisi, Georgia's capital.
