Tbilisi, Georgia, Oct.9
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
NATO infrastructure in Georgia will surely be created, Georgian Defence Minister Irakli Alasania said, commenting on the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
"I would like to state that the infrastructure of NATO in Georgia will be created," the minister said. "It is an agreement reached at the summit. NATO-Georgia package is aimed at creation of an alliance infrastructure in our country, conduction of joint military exercises. This will increase both the constraint of the aggression, which comes from Russia, and our defence."
He said that it's a solved issue.
"It helps to strengthen stability both in our country and the region," Alasania said.
"Regarding the threats, the greatest threat to the region is the Russian occupying forces in our country and aggression carried out by Russia against Ukraine."
He expressed hope that international community pressure will force Russia to fulfill its obligations.
