By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili believes that the state is obliged to investigate all details and nuances of the August war.

"The Hague demands our state to investigate the circumstances of the August war. Otherwise, The Hague will do it. Our state is obliged to investigate this issue," the prime minister stressed.

He said the investigation process hasn't been completed yet, adding that only the information that doesn't contain state secret will be made public.

Large scale military action was launched between Georgia and Russia in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008.

Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.

Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August.

In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognized republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
