Declaration by the President of the Congress on the treaty signed between the Russian Federation and Abkhazia

Reacting to the signature, on 24 November 2014, of a treaty on alliance and strategic partnership between the Russian Federation and Abkhazia, a separatist region of Georgia, the President of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, Jean-Claude Frécon, declared that “Abkhazia is a region of Georgia, and we cannot recognise the validity of a so-called treaty adopted in violation of the territorial integrity of a member state of the Council of Europe”. The President of the Congress condemned the treaty as “one more factor in the destabilisation of this part of Europe”.
