Georgian lawmakers will consider the draft law “On Occupied Territories” for the first time on Friday. Parliamentary Speaker David Bakradze has called upon every political party to take part in discussions on this document.

Under the draft law Abkhazia and South Ossetia will be declared occupied territories and the Russian Army occupying troops. The document will also regulate issues concerning property in the breakaway territories, stating that investments made in these regions will be declared invalid.
