MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Defence Ministry is not planning to invite foreign military observers to attend the strategic command and staff war games Caucasus-2012, which are due in September, Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Alexander Postnikov told reporters on Tuesday.
“Foreign observers are not expected to be invited for the war games, as these military exercises should drill issues of our home security,” the deputy chief of the Russian General Staff explained.
The general noted that the US congressmen do not have any reasons to be concerned about the war games Caucasus-2012. “The military exercises are not targeted against any third countries or military and political blocs, therefore, I do not see any links with the concerns of US congressmen,” Postnikov said.
“We have planned these military exercises long ago, this is our domestic event and we will hold it compulsorily in any case,” he underlined.
