Abkhazia, Georgia, and the EU

In talks with Georgia late last month the Abkhazian government has demanded that it hand over detainees from the Abkhazian War of Independence. This comes as the country campaigns for wider international recognition, particularly in Latin America, and as the European Union introduces a policy of "integration without recognition" that is providing humanitarian development aid to Abkhazia without formally recognizing its independence. Abkhazia has also begun a new post-war census to more accurately determine the size and composition of the country's population. (Figures from a 2003 census are disputed.)
