Georgian Tour Operator Stops Cooperation with Russian Agency

TBILISI – Georgian tour operator Captain Plus has informed the Russian tourist agency Coral Travel of the termination of their cooperation, via an official letter.

This is because Coral Travel started tour sales in Abkhazia, an occupied territory of Georgia.

Captain Plus published the letter on their Facebook page stating that “the borders of Georgia are an unambiguous concept and are not subject to change!”

“We believe that your company’s activities are against Georgia’s state interests and insults the dignity of Georgian citizens, accordingly, Captain+ does not want any kind of cooperation with the company that grossly violates Georgia’s state interests and does not respect the dignity of the citizens. That is why we stop all kinds of relations and also refuse any service of your company in the future,” the letter states.

The company urges tourists companies on the Georgian market to not contribute to the recognition of the occupation. 

შემთხვევა, როდესაც სიტყვები ზედმეტია და არაფერს ცვლის, მოქმედებაა საჭირო! "კაპიტან +" არამარტო თავად წყვეტს პარტნიორობ...
