Georgian Ministers See No Threat in Russia Army’s Trainings in North Caucasus
Georgia, Tbilisi, 12 June / Trend corr N. Kirtskhalia/ "I do not think military trainings which Russian army is implementing nearby Georgia can pose a threat to the country," Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said to journalists on 12 June, when commenting on large-scale trainings of Russian troops in the Northern Caucasus.
"Now we do not have any reason for concern, because it is Russia's right to carry out its trainings in its territory. However, we just do not want Moscow to move its tanks to the conflict territories without coordinating this issue with Georgia," she said.
Georgian State Minister for Re-integration Temur Yakobashvili also does not think the trainings are a reason for concern. "That is their matter. I do not think they will move force to our territory," he said.
