USA doesn’t regard embargoing arms supplies to Georgia as necessary

2009-08-07 12:29

The USA currently does not supply Georgia with armaments and don't think that arms embargo should be laid in regard to this country, said today Philip Gordon, the Assistant Secretary of State. In his interview to Interfax he explained that Georgia, as well as any other country, has a right for self-defense.


Several days ago Grigoriy Karasin, the deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, said that according to the data the Russian side has not only the USA, but other countries as well supply Georgia with armaments, though he never explained which ones.

The General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces also expressed anxiety over the continuing arms supplies to Georgia from abroad.

"The military capacity of Georgian armed forces is being restored, and arms supplies continue, though not as before, when it had been done under pretence of preparation of Georgia's armed forces following NATO standards. Now the supplies of armaments and military machinery continue, though according to another scheme", said Anatoliy Nagovitsin, the deputy Chief of Staff.

"It cannot but worry us, as no threat for Georgia from the side of the Russian federation, from the Northern direction exists," he highlighted.
