"If we render military assistance to Georgia, it may be that Russians will actively impede the realization of the USA's important strategic interests", - Beyrle is cited by IA OSinform.

The diplomat also underlined that such development of events will cause an utterly negative reaction on the part of the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Let us remind you that during a recent meeting of Mikhail Saakashvili and American Senator John McCain, the latter stated that Georgia should have a chance to "defend itself against Russian aggression in future". "The Georgians should have an opportunity to defend themselves against the aggression, so the issue of the defensive weapons supply to Georgia is my priority, as well as that of several more congressmen", - McCain added.

In his turn, a well-known Russian military expert Konstantin Sivkov agrees with an opinion that the US' resumption of arms supply to the Georgian army will negatively affect the Russian-American relations. "In case these plans are realized, Americans will lose the opportunity of providing for its peacekeeping contingent in Afghanistan via an air corridor through the Russian territory, which means the failure of the whole operation", - the expert said in his interview to GeorgiaTimes.
