2009-12-09 16:20

Further militarization of Georgia can lead to new wave of tension and instability in Caucasus, Sergey Shamba, the Foreign Minister of Abkhazia, believes - RIA Novosti.


"Georgia doesn't stop the policy of supercharging the situation, and the moderators of Geneva process must learn it", he said yesterday in Sokhumi, at the meeting with Johan Verbeke, the co-chairman of Geneva talks from the UN side.

Shamba added he didn't share Verbeke's optimism about "stabilization" of relations between Abkhazia and Georgia.

In his opinion, Georgia is arming intensively, flights of reconnaissance unmanned aircrafts continue, military contingent in West Georgia increase, drawing of artillery subdivision from Gori to Vaziani is in process.

Shamba stated that Georgia also increases tension in the sea and reminded the incident of capturing the vessel carrying cargo to Abkhazia. "We'll consider the incident over when the cargo and the ship are returned," he said.

He mentioned the aggressive actions of Georgia made Abkhazia turn to Russia for assistance in ensuring security in the sea. Now the waters of Abkhazia are patrolled by Russian vessels, and in case of necessity their number can be increased.
