Georgia denied Russian experts to access to its military facilities

2009-01-22 18:54

Georgia claims force majuere to the Vienna Document of 1999 (OSCE Vienna Document 1999 of the Negotiations on Confidence and Security-Building Measures) and refuses to let Russian evaluation missions and inspections to its military objects.


In the special statement, issued in response to the request of the Russian Federation's notification of the intention to conduct evaluation visit and inspection on the facilities of the Georgian Armed Forces (on January 19th and 21st 2009) underlines that "Georgian party claims force-majeure only in regards with the Russian Federation" and Georgia is ready to implement all the regulation of the Document in regards with other participant countries of the Vienna Document.

Tbilisi reasons the refuse with the fact that "In August 2008, the Russian Federation carried out the large scale military aggression against Georgia, which resulted in occupation of inalienable part of the Georgian territory".

"Since adoption of six-point ceasefire agreement of August 12, 2008 Russia has been in gross violation of its provisions and in contrary to the obligation to withdraw back its forces to the positions they held prior to the outbreak of hostilities, have started building new military bases on the territory of Georgia - Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region", the Ministry states.

According to the statement,"aggressive acts are systematically carried out from the occupied territories. Particularly there are 11 policemen (the most incident occurred on 16 January) and numerous civilians killed in the districts adjacent to the territories occupied by the Russian forces from the day of ceasefire agreement up to day".

Tbilisi believes that there are no guarantees that Russia will not try to conduct any further aggressive acts, and the information obtained in the course of the missions and inspections visits will not be used to the detriment of the security of Georgia.

The force majuere in regard to the Russian Federation will be removed only after full deoccupation of Georgian territory, including Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the document claims.
