Georgian Deputy PM refutes reports on opening of Russian border guards' post on Mamison Pass
Georgia, Tbilisi, May 11 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian Deputy Prime Minister and State Reintegration Minister Temur Yakobashvili categorically refused Russia's reports on opening of the Russian border guards' post on the Mamison Pass (Georgian-Russian border).
"Perhaps, the Russian went there for special equipment or used climbers, otherwise they can not reach it," he said before the governmental meeting.
The Russian officials spread the information about the opening of the post. The pass belongs to Georgia, but the separatist authorities in South Ossetia claims for it.
Yakobashvili stressed that the pass is under snow and that it is impossible to pin down.
"The Russian official spread so much nonsense that it is impossible to comment," he added.
