According to the existing information, during the meeting, Bzhania expressed confidence that Lukashenko’s visit would “give a new impetus to relations between the two peoples.”
For his part, Lukashenko recalled his visit to Abkhazia in the past and denoted that he recently discussed issues related to Abkhazia with Russian President, during which they “came to the same conclusion that Abkhazia should not be abandoned”.
