US to give no weapon to Georgia - Shevardnadze

12661.jpegIn the opinion of former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze, the United States won't supply arms to the republic. The reason is not only a reload between Washington and Moscow, Rosbalt reports.


"The USA and the West are very prudent about supplying arms to such countries as Georgia, - he underlined. - Though the Georgian government claims that it is going to settle its territorial problems peacefully, our partners do not have full trust in us so we won't get any weapon".

Last week, Pentagon's spokeswoman Wendy Snyder stated that the USA are presently not going to resume arms sale to Georgia.

"Reports on the US' sale of weapon to Georgia via third countries do not at all correspond to facts", - she stressed, having added that such issues are handled by the state department.

Let us remind you that earlier, US Senator Josef Lieberman underlined that Washington would procure Georgia with defensive weapon.

Lieberman said that this weapon must be used by Georgia to enhance its own safety and "defend itself against Russia". "That's the small contribution the U.S. can make for Georgia", - he added.

The Senator also added that the statement of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili that the republic promises not to apply force in respect of Abkhazia and South Ossetia is very important for the U.S.
