Foreign Office Minister David Lidington said:

“I am concerned by the increasing number of incidences of borderisation (physical construction of fences/barbed wire) along the Administrative Boundary Lines (ABLs) between Georgia and the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The UK supports Georgia’s territorial integrity and rejects any events which will increase tensions and isolation in communities living along the ABLs.”
