Georgian Ministry of Defense disproved information the Abkhazian side had disseminated on resumed flights of Georgian pilotless drones over the territory of Abkhazia.


"We don't confirm this information, our aircrafts didn't enter the air space over the territory under control of the Abkhazian side and in areas close to the administrative border, - David Nardaya, head of Defense Ministry information and analytical department told RIA Novosti today.

As Georgia Times wrote on Wednesday there was a statement on Abkhazian Foreign Ministry's site informing that Georgia had resumed flights of pilotless aircrafts over the territory of Abkhazia.

"On July 7 2009 at 22.00 near Saberio village the border-security forces of Abkhazia caught sight of two pilotless aircrafts going from Georgia into Gali district of Abkhazia. Then at 23.35 near Khukhun village of Tkvarchali district two pilotless drones were noticed too", - the Abkhazian Foreign Ministry reports.

According to Abkhazia's Foreign Ministry in the past the flights of Georgian pilotless drones were carried out for airborne reconnaissance aimed at preparation for a military operation.

The Abkhazian side expressed serious concern over Georgia's renewed provocations that might lead to new conflict escalation.
