Georgia, Tbilisi, April 12 / Trend, N.Kirtskhalia /
Georgia currently manufactures its own anti-tank weapons which cost it twice as less than imports, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said during a visit to the Delta Scientific and Technical Centre.
"No one gave us anti-tank weapons until 2008, although we did ask and now we no longer need to purchase then as we've released our own weapon which cost almost twice as less," Saakashvili said.
The President got a close up view with machine guns, grenade launchers and mortars in the Delta Centre.
Saakashvili expressed his confidence that in the future Georgia will create its missile defence system. He also stressed that in the future Georgia, along with reconnaissance drones, will release UAV that can carry heavy bombs on board.
The President said today the company employs 2500 people and in the future that number is likely to triple. He intends to urge all specialists who left the country, to return home and contribute to strengthening their national defence.
