RA MFA: the report of Secretary General of the Council of Europe is aimed at discrediting the image of the Republic of Abkhazia
Comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia in connection with the report of Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjørn Jagland on the "conflict in Georgia".

Sukhum. April 21. Apsnypress. On April 19, 2017, the Committee of the Deputy Ministers of the Council of Europe considered the 15th consolidated report on the "conflict in Georgia" prepared by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, in which noted serious human rights violations in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
 
 "We must state with great regret  that the Council of Europe once again demonstrated its absolute commitment in matters of objective and impartial coverage of the situation in the Republic of Abkhazia.
 
 As before, we have to face tendentiousness and a complete lack of professionalism in preparing such reports aimed at discrediting the image of the Republic of Abkhazia. Once again, the Council of Europe, just like other European structures that continue to pursue a policy of unconditional support for Georgia, demonstrated their unwillingness to fully study the situation in Abkhazia. The basis for such reports of the Council of Europe is the materials regularly published by the Foreign Ministry of Georgia, which are of a deliberately false nature and can not be used as objective sources of information," the Abkhaz Foreign Ministry said in a commentary.
 
 The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia draws attention to the fact that "in European and international structures there is a practice when the position of the Abkhaz side is not taken into account when preparing such reports. Moreover, none of the European "experts" involved in the preparation of such documents considers it necessary to visit the Republic of Abkhazia for a more detailed study of the situation on the ground and receiving objective information. As a result of such actions of the European political nomenclature, periodically there are various reports that are populist in nature and are designed to distort the real situation in Abkhazia.
 Representatives of the Council of Europe, remaining in captivity of their own illusions, continue to support the thesis of the territorial integrity of Georgia, thus defending long-held political realities.
 
 At the same time, the Council of Europe in its report condemns the process of dynamically developing bilateral interstate relations between the Republic of Abkhazia and the Russian Federation. Representatives of the Council of Europe did not ignore the visit of Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov to the Republic of Abkhazia on April 18-19, 2017, giving it an extremely negative assessment.
 
 The result of such provocative attacks by official European structures in relation to the Republic of Abkhazia was a significant growth of distrust in the Abkhazian society towards any initiatives of the European Union. The fact that the European structures are deaf to the official appeals of the representatives of the Republic of Abkhazia and the numerous problems characteristic of the citizens of Abkhazia is outraged.
 
 It should be noted that the full-scale violation of the rights of citizens of the Republic of Abkhazia does not at all concern European experts in the field of human rights. The continuing policy of isolating Abkhazia, the flagrant violation of the right to freedom of movement, the refusal to issue visas, the disruption of humanitarian, cultural and sports events in which participate representatives of Abkhazia, remain outside the scope of European diplomacy".
 
Given the above, the Abkhaz side intends to raise the fact of the publication of such a politicized report during the forthcoming visit of the Co-Chairs of the Geneva discussions and give an adequate assessment of such extremely negative attacks of the Council of Europe on the Republic of Abkhazia.
