Georgia, Tbilisi / corr. Trend N. Kirtskhalia/ The returning of refugees to Abkhazia is an obligation on Abkhazian government and in case of any refusal of Sukhumi to do so, Georgia will take adequate measurers, Temur Yakobashvili, the Georgian state minister on re-integration said as a reply to the statement by the Abkhazian leader Sergey Bagapsh.
The leader of Abkhaz separatists Bagapsh said to Russian journalists that the returning of 300,000 refugees, especilally from Georgia, to their lands is inadmisable for Skhumi. He said that the world should see this problem differently and see that these people have been integrated into the Georgian society and socio-political life for already 15 years.
"The Georgian government will make all efforts so that the refugees return to Abkhazia," said Yakobashvili. He denied the statements that Georgia is going to make a military intervention to Abkhazia and said that Tbilisi does not plan to do it. "There is a strong opposition against Bagapsh, which is more radical than Bagash himself," said minister.
