MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russia’s strategic partnership and allied relations treaty with Abkhazia poses no threat to the Geneva discussions on security and stability in the South Caucasus, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
“We are concerned about attempts in Tbilisi to present the recently signed Russia-Abkhazia treaty on allied relations and strategic partnership as a threat to the Geneva discussions,” Lukashevich said, adding that all explanations why those fears were groundless had been already given.
“I can say once again that nothing threatens the Geneva process, which is extremely important to all its participants,” the Russian diplomat said.
“We sincerely hope that Georgia’s newly-formed delegation will not seek a useless wrangle under a far-fetched pretext instead of talking about real problems threatening the region and existing in the sphere of the region’s security and stability,” he added.
The treaty on allied relations and strategic partnership between Russia and Abkhazia signed by the two countries’ leaders last week provides for the creation of a common defense and security space. Under the treaty, the two countries are to set up a joint group of troops within one year after the treaty’s entry into force.
