Peace plan for Abkhazia
Monday 26 July 1993
Eduard Shevardnadze, the Georgian leader, decided yesterday to approve a peace agreement with secessionists in the province of Abkhazia, saying that 'the end of the war in my own country is already a victory', AP reports from Tbilisi.
Georgian MPs severely criticised the peace plan, brokered by Russia, but later gave Mr Shevardnadze carte blanche to approve it. But the Abkhazian attitude remained unclear.
