According to secretary of the security council of breakaway Abkhazia Stanislav Lakoba, today the most urgent issue for Abkhazia is restoration of air links with Russia. Lakoba made this statement at a scientific seminar held in Sukhumi.
He called it strange that flights between Russia and Abkhazia have not yet been restored and "in Russia there is no airline that would operate flights to Sukhumi."
He expressed regret regarding the fact that ports are inactive.
Lakoba also said that he understood Armenia’s interest in restoration of rail movement through Abkhazia, but so far "due to some political reasons the project cannot be realized."
