2009-08-11 12:16

The USA will send 85 marine troops servicemen to Georgia, ITAR-TASS reports citing to the Financial Times.


According to the paper, the U.S. military will work in the frame work of the program on training Georgian units to be sent to Afghanistan. Matthew Bryza, the US deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs, staying in Georgia with the farewell visit, said the US would provide training and equipment for Georgian servicemen bound for Afghanistan but would not supply weapons to Georgia.

At the press conference on August 5th Grigori Karasin, the deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, stated that the USA, alongside with other countries, supplies weapons to Tbilisi.

At the same time anonymous sources state that Obama's administration stopped all the military export to Georgia, though without announcement.
