Turkish financial institutions do not operate on the territory of occupied Abkhazia - Turkish Ambassador

Turkey recognizes Georgia’s sovereignty and Turkish financial institutions do not operate on the territory of occupied Abkhazia. Such a statement made today Fatma Ceren Yazgan, Ambassador of Turkey to Georgia, after a visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


“As for bank cards and financial services, this issue is still on the agenda, and it concerns a specific group of Russian cards that services its customers in Turkey. They may have an agreement with another financial organization based in Sukhumi that cannot operate in Turkey. Consequently, everything is clear. Today we discussed a problem that does not exist. We will cooperate closely to avoid similar misunderstandings in the future”, - said Ambassador.


Media in occupied Abkhazia reported that the leading Turkish banks started servicing Abkhazian national Apra World plastic cards and have authorized it in the Ishbank and Ziraat Bank terminal networks as part of a pilot program.
