Georgia, Tbilisi, March 9 / Trend , N. Kirtskhalia /
An agreement signed in 2006 is now invalid, because the opening of the Upper Lars checkpoint is regulated by a new agreement reached recently with the mediation of Switzerland as a Georgia's representative in Russia and Russia in Georgia, Georgian Foreign Ministry told Trend .
Regarding the Azerbaijani side's fears on the possible supply of military fright to Armenia, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said that no bullet will pass across the border, which is another confirmation of the invalidity of the agreement signed in 2006. Moreover, it should be noted that in military confrontation with Russia, Georgia can not afford the appearance of Russian military cargo on its territory, even transporting to Armenia.
According to leader of the Green Party Giorgi Gachechiladze, opening the Upper Lars checkpoint is part of the agreement signed in 2006 between Georgia and Russia. Specifically, the question is about agreement in connection with the use of Georgian territory for transit, in terms of the Russian Defence Ministry's interests.
Gachechiladze stressed that the agreement directly says that it is done for the needs of Russia's 102nd base in Armenia. According to him, Russia is using Georgia for the transit of military freight to Armenia.
