In his speech, the Chairman of the Diaspora, Mr. Zaza Tsereteli stated that he and all Georgians believe that the departure of Abkhazia is to be temporarily cut off from this region and that sooner or later it will be a happy day when Georgians, Abkhazians, Ossetians and others will celebrate together the restoration of territorial integrity
