Sukhum. January 18, 2021. Apsnypress. The Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia commented on the speech of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the conference of the Paris Scientific School on Foreign Affairs, where he said that it is "almost a provocation to question the right of a sovereign state to decide its own future ."

“This statement, made in the context of discussing NATO's strategy to involve Georgia and Ukraine in the alliance, is of interest from the point of view of identifying the approaches of NATO member states to contemporary international realities. As follows from the speech of the head of NATO, the approaches of Brussels, formally equal and respectful towards all members of the international community, are in fact extremely selective and suffer from obvious tendentiousness, ” the RA Foreign Ministry's commentary says.

According to Stoltenberg, the sovereignty of countries such as Georgia or Ukraine is sacred for NATO, and the head of the alliance is ready in words to protect these countries from any, even imaginary encroachments.

“The NATO leader does not even allow thought to question the right of Georgia and Ukraine to decide their future. At the same time, following the logic of Stoltenberg, there are other states that do not fall under NATO's criteria and which, in his view, do not have the right to independently decide their fate. There is no doubt that the NATO leadership actually refers the Republic of Abkhazia to the latter category. And no objective signs of the state's solvency, including those enshrined in international law, nor the actual existence of the Republic of Abkhazia as an independent state for more than 25 years and its recognition as a member of the UN Security Council, do not affect NATO's politicized position, ” the Commentary says.

According to the Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia, the North Atlantic Alliance cannot part with the ideas of the Cold War era and prefers to act in the spirit of bloc confrontation, contributing to division of the world into warring camps.

“It is unnecessary to indicate what kind of explosive potential such a NATO strategy in relation to the South Caucasus contains. Today this strategy is expressed in the regular exercises of the Western alliance with Georgia and the building up of the military potential of Tbilisi,” the RA Foreign Ministry said.

The RA MFA warns about the need to clearly understand the full responsibility for such an adventurous policy.

"The events of 2008 should serve as an eloquent reminder to Brussels and Washington of the consequences of flirting with Georgia and its being drawn into the Western military bloc," the RA Foreign Ministry reminds.

The course of confrontation and formation of influence spheres taken today must be revised in the interests of long-term peace in the South Caucasus, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia.

“Such a revision is impossible without abandoning the practice of double standards and dividing the countries of the region into“ friends ”and“ foes ”. Only in this case it will be possible to confidently declare the achievement of such a world order, which will be built on the rules and respect for all nations, regardless of their potential, ” the Abkhazian Foreign Ministry said in the Commentary.
