Abkhazian language is in danger of extinction, President Zourabichvili writes

Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili wrote on social media that the Abkhazian language is in danger of extinction:

"Today, when the Abkhazian language is in danger of disappearing, the Abkhazian language day should be a day of reflection for us, Abkhazians and Georgians, because there is no survival of the Abkhazians without the survival of the Abkhazian language," President wrote.

According to President Zourabichvili's explanation, the Abkhazian language faced the threat of extinction for the first time in its many thousand years of existence.

"It is symbolic that the river Engur, which separates us today, was called the underground river of wisdom in the Sumerian language. Wisdom should bring us closer to each other, lack of wisdom has led us to disaster, and in its many millennia of existence, the Abkhazian language has faced the threat of extinction for the first time.

Georgia, while deepening its European integration, should be able to make the survival and development of the Abkhazian language an important topic of the common European cultural agenda.

As I stated last year in "UNESCO" regarding the establishment of the International Day of Caucasian Languages, it is possible to save the Caucasian languages, including the Abkhazian language, only with the involvement of the international community", wrote President Zourabichvili.
