Khajimba: New Treaty with Moscow to ‘Modernize’ Abkhaz Army
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 12 Oct.'14 / 19:46

New comprehensive cooperation treaty with Russia will enhance military alliance with Moscow and help to modernize Abkhaz army, Abkhaz leader, Raul Khajimba, said at an event marking 22nd anniversary of the breakaway region’s armed forces on October 11.
 
“We need to strengthen and enhance our military alliance with Russia. That is also an aim of new agreement, which we plan to sign before the end of this year. It will allow us to carry out a large-scale modernization of our army, bring to higher level its material-technical support and preparedness, and will significantly increase salaries and social protection of servicemen,” Khajimba said.

He also said that efforts should also be made to “increase prestige” of the military service among youth and to boost “military-patriotic” education.
