“In general, I wish to say that our shared goal should be the unification of our country. It is the prime aim and idea, around which our nation and country should all get united,” stated the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili.
He noted so-called state budget of occupied Abkhazia consists of several hundred – 200 MLN USD.
“Thus, they are fully subsidized and I wish to say the following: It is a missed opportunity for our Abkhazian and Ossetian brothers and sisters. In the case of unification, we could invest about 10 BLN USD in the first three years in Abkhazia and Samachablo. It could very easily be organized and we have conceptualized this topic. We had a discussion around this matter at the Economic Council Meeting. Abkhazia could turn into another Monaco. It is not an exaggerated assessment. Abkhazia has a huge potential for turning into another Monaco and Sokhumi – into Monte Carlo. It may well be said so. That is why, of course, our policy is peaceful and we wish to heal the wounds of so many wars,” stated Garibashvili.
He stressed that the policy will not be revisited adding their sole intention is to resolve the conflict only with peace to end this horrible tragedy and reconcile to make sure that all live together in a strong Georgia – European Georgia.
