Moscow concerned about remilitarization of Georgia

2012-12-25 12:27

Russia is concerned about possible rearmament of Georgia. According to the RIA Novosti, this was announced by the Deputy Defense Minister of Russia Anatoly Antonov.


"We always pay serious attention to the issues of prevent the remilitarization of Georgia. We have continually raised this topic during bilateral contacts with our Western partners, and during multilateral meetings. Defense Minister and Chief of Staff have noted the danger of arms supplies into the country", Antonov said at the news conference.

Recall, in mid-December it was reported that the U.S. have opened the possibility to purchase the necessary defensive arms for Georgia. This was announced on Wednesday, December 12, by Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Alasania.

"About ten days ago the American group on bilateral military cooperation with Georgia was in Tbilisi. This was a very successful scheduled meeting. Unexpectedly the Americans opened for us the way to purchase defensive weapons. I cannot talk more specifically about this, but the main thing is that the U.S. has made political decision", he said.

But he did not rule out that this step could irritate Russia. According to him, the possibility of acquiring defensive weapons by Georgia will not break the balance of military power in the region.
