Ambassador Yitzhak Gerberg made the statement Friday following a visit to Abkhazia earlier in the week by representatives of an Israeli security firm.

Israel Ziv, the founder and owner of Global CST, a security consultancy, led a delegation of its executives to Abkhazia. They met with Abkhaz officials and discussed potential business ties.
