Abkhaz MPs critical of Armenian premier`s statement 

Abkhaz MPs critical of Armenian premier`s statement 

ArmInfo.Deputies of the People's Assembly - Parliament of the Republic of Abkhazia, Ashot Minosyan, Galust Trapizonyan, Erik Rshtuni, and Levon Galustyan, have issued a statement in response to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. In his recent remarks, Pashinyan expressed unwavering  support for what he referred to as the unity and statehood of Georgia.

"In my public statements, I have repeatedly declared that we fully  and unequivocally support the unity and statehood of Georgia,"  Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan recently stated.

In their statement, the deputies of the Parliament of the Republic of  Abkhazia said:

"Following the tragedy in Artsakh, where the current Armenian  leadership doomed 120,000 of its citizens in Nagorno-Karabakh to  displacement, one could have disregarded Pashinyan's latest  statement. However, his thesis on supporting the territorial  integrity of Georgia sounded excessively cynical.

This cynicism is not because the Republic of Abkhazia, being an  independent state, has no relation to sovereign Georgia, but because  just a few years ago, Yerevan loudly proclaimed that Artsakh was  Armenia and would not allow any Azerbaijani encroachments on the  territory of Karabakh.

Unfortunately, subsequent events showed that Armenian authorities are  prone to opportunism and easily change positions, including on such a  sensitive issue for all Armenians as the existence of the Artsakh  state.  The fact of its disappearance from the world's political map  is entirely the 'merit' of official Yerevan, which has done  everything to abandon the idea of building a sovereign  Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Let's recall that tens of thousands of  people laid down their lives for its creation."

The authors of the statement perceive Pashinyan's words as a demarche  against their homeland - the Republic of Abkhazia.

The Armenian Prime Minister's statement negatively impacted them and  left an unpleasant aftertaste.

The deputies of the Parliament of Abkhazia remind Nikol Pashinyan  that 42,000 Armenians live in independent Abkhazia.

"All conditions have been created for the indigenous people to study  our native language and preserve our unique customs and traditions.  We proudly call Abkhazia our homeland. Lastly: Armenia can, of  course, support the territorial integrity of Georgia. But the  sovereign Republic of Abkhazia has no relation to it whatsoever. For  30 years now, our multinational people have been building their  state. Unlike Pashinyan, in Abkhazia, there are no politicians who  would doubt the choice of the people and with a stroke of a pen,  liquidate a country won by the blood of its sons and daughters," the  deputies' statement concludes."

Aslan Bzhania responds to Pashinyan

Meanwhile, in a recent statement, the President of Abkhazia, Aslan  Bzhania, responded to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's  remarks.

President Bzhania, in his statement published on the official state  website, criticised the Armenian leadership for its pro-Georgian  stance, which he argues contradicts the sovereignty of Abkhazia. He  highlighted Pashinyan's support for "unity, sovereignty, territorial  integrity, independence, and democracy of Georgia," as fundamentally  opposing Abkhazia's status as a sovereign state.

Bzhania further emphasised the role and rights of the Armenian  community in Abkhazia, drawing a stark contrast to the situation in  Karabakh. Bzhania stated, 'Armenians in Abkhazia have everything that  Nikol Pashinyan could not guarantee to the Armenians of Karabakh.' He  criticised Pashinyan's policies, which led to the statehood collapse  and mass exodus in Nagorno-Karabakh, and indirectly affected the  territorial integrity of Armenia itself.

Concluding his statement, Bzhania called for the Armenian leadership  to reconsider its foreign policy approach, moving away from rhetoric  influenced by Western perspectives and acknowledging the actual  international realities.
