Georgia, Tbilisi, Jan. 24 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /

Georgia hopes that no threats will be real after selling "Mistral" to Russia, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said at a weekly press briefing.

"Mistral" agreement will be signed tomorrow by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin. The talks were launched last year to sell a Russian warship to Russia.

"Georgia, like other countries, expressed its skepticism about the threats as a result of the deal. Georgia hopes that both countries take into account possible threats and they will not be real," she said.
