As reported by the IA NR2, Georgian Foreign Ministry has accused Russia of "speculation" on the situation in one of its regions - the Samtskhe-Javakheti, where Armenians live compactly.
According to Tbilisi, there is no threat of formation of an independent state in this region, and certain forces in Russia are behind such statements, Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said.
"Last week, representatives of the so-called "Javakhk Diaspora in Russia" released a statement via media, saying that a "Javakh state" may appear on the territory of Georgia if the country joins NATO. It is obvious that certain forces in Russia are behind this provocative statement", the edition quoted the official.
According to the edition, the Georgian government has a specific strategy in relation to national minorities which are being successfully implemented, Kalandadze added.
With regard to NATO's threats to Armenia, Kalandadze reminded that not only Georgia but also Armenia was successfully cooperating with the alliance. According to Nino Kalandadze, only Russia and pro-Russian forces can see a threat in this cooperation, since Russia is trying to keep the organization as far from sovereign states neighboring Russia as possible, the IA Regnum reported.
Kalandadze also stated the matter of relations between Georgia and NATO has not been discussed at the meeting of Minister for Foreign Affairs of Georgia with his Armenian counterpart in Tbilisi. "It was an ordinary working visit", she said.
