2010-05-11 16:40

Temur Iakobashvili, Georgia's State Minister for Reintegration , said Tbilisi has no intention to resume war with Abkhazia. "In case additional guarantees are needed, we are ready to sign a due document with Russia and with the world community," he said - GHN.


Georgia doesn't intend to start a war, the State Minister claimed. "And we proved it with our signature t the document of 6 points," he concluded.

Previously Grigol Vashadze, the Foreign Minister of Georgia, noted the country was ready to sign an agreement on non-use of force in Caucasus region, but only with Russia, but not with participation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

"We see no legal basis for it, because they do not exist as states," he protested. "The August 12th 2008 agreement already implies a paragraph on non-use of force. But if Russia want something additional, Georgia is ready to sign a non-use of force agreement at any time," Vashadze added.

"If Russia wants one more legal tool - no problem. But if there were Mr.Lavrov [Russian Foreign Minister], I could sign it right away. But never with the representatives of these regimes and not at the cost of Georgia's sovereignty," Vashadze said.

According to Vashadze, from the very beginning of Geneva Talks, Tbilisi has been offering Moscow to sign an agreement with indication on non-use of force, presence of discords and intention to maintain stability in the region.
