Abkhazia represents a breakaway republic whose independence is not recognized internationally. De jure, Abkhazia is headed by the Chairman of the Supreme Council (in exile) while de facto it is headed by the President (President of Abkhazia). Ajaria, which is headed by the Chairman of Cabinet of Ministers, became fully loyal to the central authorities of Georgia following a peaceful ousting of the former secessionist leader in 2004. Sir Lepel Griffin's opinion is that the Sandhus came into the Punjab region from northeastern Ottoman Empire (modern Georgia (Georgia (country)), Chechenya, Adjara, Abkhazia). H.A. Rose writes in his book that the Sandhus have eighty-four branches,some of them are in Pakistan occupied Kashmir ending with the words 'yal' or 'aal'. According to the Sialkot Gazette of 1883-84, there were five main branches of Sandhus.

After the Bolshevik advance into Armenia, the Alexandropol treaty was superseded by the Treaty of Kars (October 23, 1921), signed between Turkey and the Soviet Union. The treaty allowed for Soviet annexation of Adjara in exchange for Turkish control of the regions of Kars (Kars Province), Igdir (Iğdır Province), and Ardahan (Ardahan Province). The treaty established peaceful relations between the two nations, but as early as 1939, some British diplomats noted indications that the Soviet Union was not satisfied with the established border. On more than one occasion, the Soviets attempted to renegotiate with Turkey to at least allow the Armenians access to the ancient ruins of Ani (Ani (Turkey)). However, the government in Ankara refused these attempts. ) by the Tsar’s decree of 1825.
