Kove: the Abkhaz-Russian business forum is an opportunity to show the world the enormous potential of relations between the two union states
The 8th Abkhaz-Russian Business Forum is taking place in Sukhum.

Sukhum. 27 October. Apsnypress. Foreign Minister of Abkhazia Daur Kove, addressing the forum participants, noted that the Abkhaz-Russian business forum is a landmark discussion platform where the main directions of Abkhaz-Russian cooperation are discussed, primarily in the trade and economic sphere. Important exchange of experience for our countries, concrete agreements, future plans, all takes place here.

 Kove stressed: "The strategic nature of the Abkhaz-Russian interstate relations opens us wide opportunities for full-fledged development in all key areas.
 Interaction in the international arena is one of the most important areas of cooperation between our countries. Foreign policy is an area where clearly defined interests of Abkhazia and Russia allow achieving the set goals. Abkhaz-Russian relations are based on a solid legal foundation that began to form immediately after the Russian Federation recognized the independence of the Republic of Abkhazia in 2008. More than 100 agreements have already been signed between our countries, which cover practically all areas of bilateral cooperation. "
 The Minister of Foreign Affairs attached great importance to building a full-fledged interregional cooperation. "Cooperation between the Republic of Abkhazia and the Russian Federation at the interregional level is one of the main directions of bilateral Abkhaz-Russian interaction. The Republic of Abkhazia signed cooperation agreements, protocols of intentions, as well as interagency agreements with more than thirty subjects of the Russian Federation, - "the minister said.   
"The Republic of Abkhazia is open for communication with those countries and organizations that recognize the importance of equal, trusting communication, respect our aspirations. We do not close the country for visits by representatives of European countries or international organizations. We have 10 representative offices of international organizations, such as UNDP, ICRC, UNHCR, Médecins Sans Frontières and others, with whom we regularly interact. We are committed to an equal and mutually respectful dialogue. We are sure that only such an approach can promote mutual trust and development of international contacts. But it must be mutual, not one-sided, "- said the head of Abkhazian foreign ministry.
 Daur Kove told about the opposition to plans and aspirations of Abkhazia, which is provided by Georgia and its Western friends: "We almost daily face cynical attempts to international isolation of our country, with all kinds of restrictions and discrimination of the rights of citizens of Abkhazia. Any occasion is used to do this, whether it is a newspaper in Abkhaz language, Abkhaz dance group performance or the organization of an exhibition. With the submission of Georgia, our initiatives aimed at expanding the Abkhazian humanitarian presence abroad are being blocked. " At the same time, the Minister noted: "Despite all external obstacles, Abkhazia will develop, build relationships with its friends in different parts of the world, popularize its values ​​and cultural wealth."
 "The Abkhaz-Russian business forum is an excellent opportunity to show the world a huge potential of relations between the two union states - the Republic of Abkhazia and the Russian Federation. I have no doubt that this potential, expressed in concrete agreements, will only expand for the benefit of the peoples of our friendly countries. I wish the participants of the forum a rich and successful work! "- summed up the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia Daur Kove.
