Medvedev Signs Cooperation Treaties with Sokhumi, Tskhinvali
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 17 Sep.'08 / 16:27

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Tbilisi did not “hide its revanchist attitudes” and warned Moscow would not allow a reoccurrence “of Georgian aggression.”

“We will not allow new military adventurism. No one should have any illusions about this,” Medvedev said on September 17 and reiterated an earlier Russian allegations that Georgian rearmament was on-going.

He was speaking in the Kremlin, where he hosted the South Ossetian and Abkhaz leaders, Eduard Kokoity and Sergey Bagapsh, respectively, and signed treaties of cooperation and friendship with the two breakaway regions, which Moscow has already recognized.

“We will provide each other with all types of assistance, including military,” Medvedev said after the signing ceremony.

The agreement envisages construction of Russia’s military infrastructure in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Separate agreements, however, will be needed for that kind of decision, which Russia has yet to sign with Tskhinvali and Moscow.

Based on such agreement, Moscow says, it plans to keep 3,700 troops in each of the region.
