McCain asks the weapons for Georgia again. 17664.jpegThe U.S. senator, Republican John McCain said that the U.S. must ensure the supply of defensive weapons for the army of Georgia.


According to Baltinfo, McCain has underlined that every country is entitled to protection, especially Georgia, because "on its borders there is an aggressive neighbor who is occupying its territory".

Recall that during a meeting with Mikhail Saakashvili in March of this year, the U.S. Senator John McCain declared that Georgia should be able to "defend itself from the Russia's attacks in future". "The Georgian people should be able to defend themselves from aggression, and therefore the question of deliveries of defensive arms to Georgia is my priority, as well as a priority of some congressmen" - said McCain.

We also note that senator John McCain is ranked by various media with participation in a campaign to lobby for the interests of Georgia in the U.S., for which, according to journalists, official Tbilisi has already spent about one and a half million dollars. The U.S. State Department supposedly "is complying with the actual embargo, quietly blocking attempts to purchase weapons to Georgia". The former Georgian ambassador to the United States was removed from office because of inability to obtain supplies of weapons, says the U.S. Magazine.

However, it is not clear whether Georgia is going to buy weapons in the U.S. or want to get it in the form of assistance. According to journalists of "Atlantic", Georgian officials decline to answer this question.
