"The Georgian president's demand to dissolve the ministry is fraught with a new conflict between the centre and the region," said Mr Gogitidze.
"Adzharia has the prerogative to have ministries and agencies, which are in the autonomy's interests. Infringements on the status of autonomy may spark a serious international scandal," said the minister.
On March 6, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili submitted a bill to Parliament abolishing Adzharia's State Security Ministry.
"There is one Constitution in Georgia, and there must be one security ministry," Mr Saakashvili told reporters in Tbilisi. Moreover, the president said some of Adzharian State Security officers engaged in espionage against Georgia.
