Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili on Monday voiced messages of “unity” to mark Abkhazia Day with Georgian citizens, and in particular with “Abkhaz brothers and sisters” in the occupied north-western region. 

In his message, the head of the Government noted the celebratory date as “another wonderful tradition” established with the blessing of the Georgian Orthodox Church Patriarch Ilia II, and highlighted the day as one that “symbolises the unity” of Georgians and Abkhazians.

Today we are separated by an occupation line, but what unites us is a common history and culture, values and aspirations for a better future for our children, and this gives us faith that tomorrow also belongs to unity, peace and friendship,” Garibashvili said.

In the message, the PM also expressed belief that the day when “Georgians and Abkhazians would be able to reunite in the name of the future” and build a “strong, developed, European country together” was not far off.
