Sergey Shamba - Minister for Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia


“The USA and the European Union put pressure upon the leadership of the countries which can recognize independence of Abkhazia”, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Abkhazia Sergey Shamba declared.

According to him, “the EU and the USA threaten the countries which are ready to consider the recognition of the republic with consequences of such a political step, without understanding that the recognition by other states is no longer a vitally important issue for Abkhazia”.

Sergey Shamba believes that “the republic can solve the two most important problems, which are very important for any state’s development i.e. security and economic development in full with Russia”. “Big Russia gives small Abkhazia the chance to solve all these problems”, the head of the republic’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs is convinced. “But our foreign policy is also aimed at establishing the same relations with other countries of the world and, first of all, with the neighboring countries, for example with Turkey and the European Union”.

The head of the foreign policy department of Abkhazia believes that “from the very beginning the European Union has chosen unconstructive attitude to Abkhazia, definitely denying the right of Abkhazia to freedom and independence”.

“We have been trying to obtain independence for a long time already, on principle and consistently. Our entire history, as a matter of fact, is struggle for independence, struggle against colonialism. During the Soviet period we were the only nation which conducted mass politically motivated protests consistently every ten years. Such protests took place even when Stalin was in power, then the following years right up to the USSR collapse. We were ready to give our arguments both legal and historical, but the EU takes no interest in them”, the Minister added regretfully.

According to S. Shamba, it happens because “the EU doesn’t proceeds from the objective reality, but from the political situation”. He believes that “the recognition of independence of Abkhazia by Russia cannot be considered only in the context August, 2008 events”. “The Abkhaz-Georgian conflict has lasted for a long time, and negotiations under the UN aegis have been held as long as in Kosovo - since 1993. Both in Abkhazia and in Kosovo it hasn’t led to the fact that the parties agreed to integration”, S. Shamba said.

“Unlike Kosovo, we, according to the Soviet Union law, had the right to secession from a Union Republic. That was adopted during “Perestroika” under Mikhail Gorbachev when the new Supreme Council took democratic decisions. Kosovo under the constitution of Yugoslavia didn’t have the right to secession from Serbia. We seceded from Georgia according to the Law “About the procedure of solving the issues connected with secession of a Union Republic from the USSR".

It gave autonomous republics the right, in case a Union Republic seceded from the USSR, to settle the question of state-legal status independently”, the head of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs said, emphasizing that “the disintegration process wasn’t initiated by Abkhazia, but Georgia”.

“Then we protected independently our country from the Georgian aggression, liberated it on our own, created efficiently functioning state power institutions. It’s all evidence of the fact that we have more rights to independence than Kosovo”, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia Sergey Shamba declared.
