On April 24, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba expressed condolences to the Armenian nation on account of the tragic events at the start of the twentieth century.
On this tragic day, I express my condolences to the Armenian nation which experienced loss and grief for the victims of the tragic events that shook the world.
Abkhazians survived the tragedy of the makhadjirstvo in the nineteenth century, and they understand the pain of the Armenian nation caused by the tragic events at the start of the twentieth century. Armenians of Abkhazia have proved their right to live on this land. Today you make an honourable contribution to the building of an independent Abkhazian state. For more than a hundred years, we live side by side, participate in the creation of values that are at the foundation of the spiritual development of our society. Our strength lies in unity, as it always was and always will be.
