Daur Kove, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, congratulated Denis Ronaldo Moncada Colindres who was appointed as the new Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Nicaragua. Mr Kove commended the meaningful and fruitful cooperation between the two countries. Nicaragua is one of the four countries (besides Russia, Venezuela and Nauru) recognising Abkhazia as an independent country. Despite being a fully-functioning and completely independent State since 1993, the international community still does not recognize it as separate from Georgia.

Below an article published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia:
