South Ossetia: The United States are pushing Georgia to aggression
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia issued a statement in which warns of possible resumption of deliveries of the U.S. weapons to Georgian army.
Recall, the U.S. parliamentarians approved the bill on the Pentagon's budget for 2012, which contains provisions on the supply of modern U.S. weapons to the Georgian army. The document is already approved by the House of Representatives and the U.S. involves the sale of defensive arms to Tbilisi. It is sent for signature to President Barack Obama.
The U.S. lawmakers urge to provide the government of Georgia the support in protection of sovereign territory. Moreover, the Congress members believe that the Obama administration must convince the authorities of other member countries of NATO and partner countries to restore sale of military equipment to Tbilisi.
In turn, as reported by IA "Osinform", in Tskhinvali they ascertain the fact that "the U.S. Senators appeared unable to draw conclusions from the tragic events of August 2008 and again took the path of encouraging Saakashvili to new acts of aggression for the sake of his political ambitions".
"It's not a secret that under the political and military support from several countries, primarily from the U.S., of the current regime of Georgia, encouraged the leadership of this state to exercise unprecedented in its cruelty and perfidy military aggression against the Republic of South Ossetia. South Ossetia has fully experienced it and knows very well the true purpose of "defensive arms", for many years supplied to Georgia from the U.S. and other Western countries", said in a statement the South Ossetian foreign Ministry.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia underlines: "a three-year abstinence of the U.S. from arms supplies to Georgia is an indirect recognition of the fact that Georgia started the war against South Ossetia and used the Western weapons during the invasion". He also requires to step up pressure on Tbilisi to sign a peace treaty between Georgia and South Ossetia.
