By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili discussed a wide range of issues with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
President Margvelashvili met with Ban Ki-moon in Vienna as part of participation in the UN conference.
The sides discussed the cooperation between Georgia and the UN, the Georgian presidential administration said Nov. 4.
It was stressed at the meeting that the recent processes in Abkhazia threaten to disrupt almost all the UN principles. President Margvelashvili paid attention to the need of the UN active involvement in these processes.
"A wide range of issues, especially, the events in Abkhazia were discussed at the meeting," the head of the presidential administration Davit Pataraia said. "In particular, the matter rested in the formalization of the so-called agreement between Russia and Abkhazia. This poses a threat to the security in the region. This is a great challenge not only for Georgia, but the basic principle of the modern international law. President Margvelashvili and our delegation expressed hope at a meeting with Ban Ki-moon that the organization will be an important structure for the protection of the basic principles of international law."
The sides also discussed the opportunity of Georgia's active involvement in the UN international projects.
Ban Ki-moon said that next year is very important for the UN, especially in terms of global development consolidation.
