Abkhazian IDPs hold protest outside Armenian embassy in Tbilisi
A group of Abkhazian IDPs gathered outside the Armenian embassy in Tbilisi on Friday to protest Armenia's attempt to prevent their return to their ancestral lands during a meeting at the Council of Europe, APA’s Georgia bureau reported.
Onise Gergetava, a NGO leader who was among the protestors, complained that the Armenian government does not support Georgia during international meetings and prevent Abkhazian IDPs from returning to homelands. She also added that Armenian officials did not vote for the relevant CoE resolution, demonstrating apparent hostility towards them.
“Are homes are occupied by Armenians. The resolution we present to the Armenian embassy calls for Armenian citizens to get our of our homes,” she said.
Gergetava noted that they would continue the protest in case their demands go unanswered.
“We demand that Armenia respect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia and sign the resolution for us to return to our homeland. We also demand that Armenia put an end to its occupation policy in the South Caucasus,” she stressed.
It should be noted that the resolution presented to the Armenian embassy has been signed by more than a thousand people.
