“Russia expressed deep concern about the statement made in Georgian media about the possible deployment of NATO military infrastructure on Georgian territory. These kind of actions would endanger regional safety of South Caucasus,” the official web page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation reads.
In the statement published on 8 October about Geneva negotiations, the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed Moscow's position about the necessity of signing a non-use of force treaty between Georgia and the so called “states” of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
“The delegations of South Ossetia and Abkhazia highlighted that the resolutions about Georgia adopted at the last NATO summit significantly increased the necessity of signing international treaties of non-use of force between Georgia and these states. In this aspect, the Russian project, which implied making a collective announcement of non-use of force treaty by the participants of the discussion, was perceived to be an effective step,” the statement reads.
