Negotiation for Georgian embargo

Negotiation for Georgian embargo
Turkish shipping firms and exporters have called upon the government in Ankara to negotiate with Georgia over the Caucasian country's embargo on the breakaway republic of Abkhazia.

Turkish shipping firms and exporters have called upon the government in Ankara to negotiate with Georgia over the Caucasian country's embargo on the breakaway republic of Abkhazia.

Turkish shipping firms and exporters have called upon the government in Ankara to negotiate with Georgia over the Caucasian country's embargo on the breakaway republic of Abkhazia which has seen Georgia commandeer more than 100 Turkish ships over the last 15 years. The Turkish firms, which do business with Abkhazia, say Georgia currently is holding 10 of their ships including freighters and fishing boats, and is detaining more than 20 Turkish personnel.

The other ships confiscated attempting to bring goods into Abkhazia have been destroyed, the report said.

Turkey officially supports Georgia's blockade of Abkhazia, which lies on the north-eastern coast of the Black Sea, and signed an agreement with Tbilisi in that respect.

Russia recognized the independence of Georgia's breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia after the South Caucasus war last year despite international protests.

In August 2008, Georgia attacked South Ossetia, triggering the war that saw Russian military units invading and temporarily occupying parts of Georgia's heartland.
