Nauru and Abkhazia extend links

2:02 pm on 27 April 2015

Nauru's foreign minister, David Adeang, has made a goodwill visit to Moscow and the breakaway Georgian region of Abkhazia.

Nauru is one of the few nations that recognises Russia's claim to Abkhasia.

Mr Adeang was in the Russian capital to discuss cooperation projects and later met the president of Abkhazia Raul Khadjimba.

The Nauru parliamentary speaker, Ludwig Scotty, has accepted an invitation to observe Abkhazia's election.
