(Tbilisi, February 28, Civil Georgia) – Georgian State Security Minister Valeri Khaburdzania states that 5 Afghan illegal immigrants detained by the Georgia law enforcers and then deported, intended to penetrate in Europe through breakaway Abkhazia.

“I do not rule out that Arab mercenaries and terrorists are not only in Pankisi gorge, but in Abkhazia as well,” Khaburdzania stated.

Authorities of unrecognized Republic of Abkhazia claim that Georgian officials assist terrorists to move from Pankisi gorge into Abkhazian territory. Officials in Tbilisi deny accusation.
