Georgia will not use military equipment to be purchased from U.S. against any country – deputy minister


Georgia will use the Javelin portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missiles to be purchased from the U.S. in order to increase its defense capacity, Georgia’s Deputy Defense Minister Lela Chikovani said on Tuesday, APA’s local bureau reported.

 

She noted that the U.S. Department of State's approval of sale of the abovementioned military equipment to Georgia confirms the strong strategic relations between the two countries.

 

“The military equipment will serve to improve Georgia's defense capacity and will not be used against any country,” Chikovani pledged.

 

The U.S. State Department approved the sale of Javelin missiles and command launch units to Georgia for an estimated cost of $75 million.
