On April 24, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba expressed condolences to the Armenian people on the day of the tragic events of the 20th century.
The text of condolences states, in particular:
On this tragic day, I would like to express condolences to all Armenian people. 103 years have passed since the events that resulted in the death of more than a million Armenians.
The Abkhazian people who experienced the tragedy of forced displacement (makhadjirstvo) understand the pain of the Armenian people. Tens of thousands of Armenians who lost their homes found refuge in Abkhazia. In the modern history, together with other nations living in Abkhazia, the Armenian people defended the freedom of the Republic of Abkhazia from the Georgian aggressor.
I am certain that brotherly relations between our nations will continue to grow stronger. We have to remember the tragic events of the past and we should not let them happen in the future.
I wish everyone peace, well-being and prosperity”.
