Georgia bans Russian military transit to Armenia

Georgia bans Russian military transit to Armenia
# 20 April 2011 07:40 (UTC +04:00)
The decision was approved unanimously on the President Mikheil Saakashvili’s initiative, APA reports quoting Armenia Today.

The five –year agreement on transit of military personnel and cargo, giving Russia access to its 102nd military base in Gyumri, Armenia through land and air via Georgia, was signed in March, 2006 in Sochi, in parallel with a separate agreement based on which Russia pulled out its military bases from Batumi and Akhalkalaki. The both of the agreements were ratified by the Georgian Parliament on April 13, 2006.

Georgian deputy foreign minister Nino Kalandadze said that taken the current situation of the Russian-Georgian relations into consideration, it wouldn’t be appropriate to use the eorgian territories for the Russian transit. “We are loyal to our commitments. Before the end of the agreement’s term, the President sent an initiative to the parliament and we will inform the Russian side about the annulment of the deal”.
