Hello, i read you artic about : " Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant " and i found one mistake. Please corect it its about Opponent(s) State opponents where mentioned " Abkhazia " as state, it is false, Abkhazia is a part of Georgia . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zura Suliashvili (talk • contribs) 20:53, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
- Not done As our article on Abkhazia explains, the status of Abkhazia is in dispute, and we will not describe it here simply as a "part of Georgia", as to do so would violate our policies on neutral point of view. Its status is clearly explained in that article. General Ization Talk 20:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
