Azerbaijan, Baku, 8 August / Trend corr. I.Alizade / Azerbaijani political scientists believe that Georgia will restore the control over the separatist South Ossetia through military ways.
"The recent events show that the official Tbilisi have seriously trained to war, it has strong army and Georgians will fight for their territorial integrity," Vafa Guluzade, an independent political scientist, told Trend on 8 August.
In the beginning of 1990, South Ossetia, having the status of autonomies within Georgia, proclaimed its independence with the support of Russia. A military conflict resulted in lost of control over the territories by official Tbilisi. The countries worldwide and international organizations have not recognized independence of South Ossetia. The peaceful negotiations for more than ten years have not yielded any results. In the early morning of 8 August, large-scale military operations commenced in the unrecognized South Ossetia Republic. Information was provided that the Georgian military people entered Tsinkhvali in the early morning. Official Tbilisi describes the events as "re-establishment of constitutional disciplines". The unrecognized South Ossetia Republic asks Russia to provide military assistance. In the morning of 8 August, mobilization of the reserved military people was declared. This information was provided by the President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, through Georgian television. According to the information, over the past years, more than 100,000 people passed military training and were reserved. The trained people are under age of 25-45 years.
Guluzade stated that foreign countries and international organizations agreed secretly to launch war by Georgia to restore its control over the separatist South Ossetia. "In spite of Russia's insist, the UN did not condemn Georgia, and all the sides including China and Croatia, voted against Moscow's proposal. International forces support Georgia," Guluzade said.
MP Aydin Mirzazade, a member of the Azerbaijani delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), told Trend that Saakashvili's administration held serious training in army to launch a war.
"Official Tbilisi attempted to solve the separatism in South Ossetia through peace ways. However, no respond has been made by separatists. The central administration of any country cannot bear existence of forces which contradicts its Constitution. Georgian's behavior meets international bills," Mirzazade stated.
The military actions will last for several days and the results will depend on Russia's alignment to the war. The fact that the UN Security Council does not support Moscow shows that most countries support Georgia: "Weakness of illegal military unifications in South Ossetia is evident. Therefore, I consider that Georgia will completely restore control over its territories."
Zardusht Alizade, an independent political scientist, said that Russia has occupied some part of Georgian territory and now it wants to separate these territories from Tbilisi.
"The war will end through help of diplomatic interference of international organizations and foreign countries, particularly the United States. Russia will have to agree with the proposal, which will be beneficial for Georgia. So, the official Tbilisi will restore control over the South Ossetia," Alizade said. According to Alizade, the West agreed Georgia to restore its territorial integrity through military ways, and there is a separate agreement on the issue.
