'No Arms Sales' to Abkhazia

TBILISI, Georgia — Israel's ambassador to Georgia said his country has no intention to supply weapons to Georgia's separatist province of Abkhazia.

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.
