Abkhazian Elections

MOSCOW () -- Parliamentary elections will be held Abkhazia as scheduled for Nov. 25 and should not affect the republic's talks with Georgia, Abkhazian leader Vladislav Ardzinba told an OSCE delegation in Georgia on Friday, Interfax reported.

The UN Security Council had passed a resolution calling for a postponement of the elections, Ardzinba said.

Ardzinba told the OSCE officials that his republic was ready to continue settlement talks with Georgia within the framework of the agreements already reached, he said, Interfax reported.
