Georgia did the dirty on the whole Caucasus

Georgia did the dirty on the whole Caucasus. 16145.jpegThe Minister of Defense Bacho Akhalaya managed to convince his Armenian colleague Seyran Oganyan that military co-operation between the two countries should be developed. Not every was glad to hear the news. Armenia is a strategic partner of Russia, and such friendship threatens Georgia with disastrous consequences in the region, when a reshuffle of the political forces in Transcaucasia becomes inevitable. Azerbaijan has been quite


loyal to Sakartvelo till now may turn its back to the Caucasian republic: an aggravation of the conflict between Erevan and Baku does not favour peaceful resolution of regional security issues.

Georgia is becoming to resemble a rabbit driven to a corner. To become a potential member of the North Atlantic Community, it needs to build warm relationships with all its neighbours, including Russia. It is clear that this course was pointed out to the Caucasian republic by Washington as they perfectly understand that other geopolitical players in the region may soon get tired of the Georgian provocations. The "perfidious invader" does not want to have any contacts with Georgia until its autocratic regime is replaced, and the United States are easily modeling a true democrat from Mikhail Saakashvili to be able to show him to Moscow without any shame. But this process will take some more time, and Sakartvelo dreams of getting into the Community right now.

That is why the Tbilisi authorities set to forge partner relationships with some more tractable countries. Armenia that fears a military conflict with Azerbaijan because of Nagorny Karabakh is hastily equipping itself with arms and looking for some alternative ways of their supply. Georgia is glad to provide its territory for the transit of similar loads, but one should not forget that the pitfalls expecting both countries on the way to such co-operations are Azerbaijan and Russia whose wrath may be stirred by the hapless latter-day friends at the most unsuitable moment.

"We must realize the risks that may accompany such partnership. In particular, Georgia and Azerbaijan are tied by a strategic partnership and we co-operate in many areas. The military co-operation of Georgia and Armenia will cause the discontent of Baku, and probably it will not be expressed just in the form of a verbal protest. Any co-operation of such kind with Armenia may bring disastrous results to Georgia. This creates an undesirable situation in the region also in terms of our good-neighbourly relations. One cannot adopt a subjective position with regard to any of the countries in the confrontation between Azerbaijan and Armenia as this will cause the irritation of the other party", mass media cite the opinion of a security expert Irakly Sesiashvili.
