Abaza public organizations of the Karachay-Cherkess and Kabardino-Balkarian republics signed a cooperation agreement at the first official meeting in Cherkessk.
Following the meeting of representatives of Abaza public organizations of the KBR and the KChR, an agreement was signed on cooperation between the Center for the Study of Culture and History of the Peoples of the Caucasus “Abaza” and the Association of Abaza public organizations “Apsadgyl”.
Vladimir Pshenokov, Head of the Regional Council of the World Abaza Congress in the KBR and the Center for the Study of Culture and History of the Peoples of the Caucasus “Abaza”, spoke about the importance of such meetings and the cultural focus of further cooperation.
“Our interaction, first of all, will be based on the cultural component. We intend to hold a number of joint activities aimed at the development of the Abaza and Abkhaz languages in Kabardino-Balkaria,” he said.
Pshenokov also drew attention to the fact that such cooperation will help to learn from the joint work of Abaza public organizations in the framework of the “Apsadgyl” association and help strengthen the Abkhaz-Abaza diaspora of Kabardino-Balkaria.
As part of the agreement, it is also planned to organize a tour of Abaza dance, song and other creative groups from Karachay-Cherkessia to popularize the culture of the Abaza people in the KBR.
Representatives of the Abaza public organizations of the Karachay-Cherkess and Kabardino-Balkarian republics agreed to hold regular similar meetings to discuss practical issues in the framework of cooperation.
The councils of the regional offices of the World Abaza Congress in the KChR and the KBR were established in 2018.
