Saakashvili demanded no weapon from Obama - Kalandadze2011-01-17 15:32
The issue of arms supply was not raised during the talks held by Presidents of U.S. and Georgia Barack Obama and Mikheil Saakashvili. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia Nino Kalandadze.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to RIA Novosti, Kalandadze underlined that media reports on the matter did not correspond to facts and the issue of arms supply was never raised.
"President of Georgia raised the issues considered in the context of the Cooperation Charter. Naturally, they primarily include economical and trade relationship, as well as security issues including Georgia's active engagement (in a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan)", - Kalandadze underlined.
Saakashvili met with Obama in the context of memorable events dedicated to the late American politician Richard Holbrooke.
Let us remind you that earlier, Pentagon spokeswoman Wendy Snyder declared that the United States are not going to resume arms sale to Georgia presently.
"The report on arms sale to Georgia by the United States via third countries does not at all correspond to facts", - she remarked, having added that this is an issue to be settled by the country's State Department.
It should also be noted that U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman underlined that Washington is to provide Georgia with defensive arms.
Lieberman said that Georgia will use these arms to enhance its own security and "protect itself against Russia". "This is a small favour the USA can do to Georgia", - he added.
