Ongoing militarization in Georgia does no good to stabilization in Caucasus2009-07-10 21:10
Further militarization of Georgia and NATO exercises in its territory don't contribute to stabilization in the Caucasus.gt-en-newsitem-inside
It was stated by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at a press conference in follow up of the G8 summit in Italy, - ITAR-TASS reports.
Since August 2008 the situation in the Caucasus has been tense, - the Russian leader stated. - We can't accept that Georgia is considering the situation as an excuse for its regime's further militarization". "What is happening now - the acquisition of accessory types of weapons - doesn't make the situation healthier", - the president is convinced.
"All kinds of exercises in the Caucasian region including Georgia were of no use even last year, before the conflict, I believe. Now they look like provocation, and we frankly told our partners in NATO about that", - Medvedev stated.
"It was a pretext to postpone announcement of RF-NATO reset", - he reminded. "Now we did that agreeing to resume military cooperation. This is all for the good but it's most important to prevent provocations", - the Russian president believes.
"As for my arrangements and Medvedev-Sarkozy plan I believe I've worked well fulfilling the task to cool the tension", - the president remarked. "Besides there are a number of clauses we need to cooperate on, and we will do that", - he promised.
