Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia condemns deployment of Russian military bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia2011-09-23 14:38
The Georgian Foreign Ministry issued a statement condemning the Russian Duma ratification of the agreement on the construction of military bases at the territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. According to Trend referring to the Georgian Foreign Ministry, "these illegal and irresponsible actions of the Russian Federation are directed to legitimize the placement of military bases on the territory of a sovereign state without the consent of the Georgian government". It is also contrary to the requirements of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), according to Georgian Foreign Ministry.
"The unprecedented concentration of the Russian military weapons and equipment at the "occupied territories" and futile attempt to legitimize of "occupation forces" has once again confirmed that Russia, after its ineligible statement on its secession from the CFE Treaty, has created conditions for the uncontrolled increase of its military forces and armaments in the area of the Contract"- said in a statement.
Moreover, the Georgian Foreign Ministry believes that such dangerous steps of Russia pose a serious threat to peace and stability not only in the Caucasus, but also in the Black and Caspian Seas, as well as in the whole of Europe.
The document expressed the categorical condemnation of the steps of the Russian Federation by the Georgian authorities. In addition, Georgia calls upon the international community to put a pressure on Russia in order to force it to comply with its international commitments and withdraw its troops from Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
