Georgian Parliament terminated military freights transit agreement with RF2011-04-20 13:40
A day ago, Georgian parliamentarians took a decision to terminate an agreement with Russia on Russian military freights transit throughout the Georgian territory signed on 31 March 2006. As was reported by GHN, the decision was taken at the latest parliament meeting by voting. Georgian parliamentarians arrived at a decision unanimously, with 84 votes.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Deputy Head of the Georgian MFA Nino Kalandadze commented upon the parliament's decision: "The agreement served for the provision of the 102nd Russian military base located in Armenia with technical and material means and staff through land and air connection keeping in mind the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense. After the "military aggression" on Russia's part, the Georgian side took a decision to terminate the agreement". She added that the term of the document signed in 2006 expires in November, which fact obliges the Georgian party to give a six-month notice to Russia.
Let us remind you that the decision on the agreement termination was taken by the head of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili; later on, the parliament supported the president's initiative.
