Georgia to Russia: 'Stop State-Sponsored Terror Campaign'
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 9 Jun.'11 / 12:18

Georgia will have to “reconsider” its stance towards Geneva talks, if Russia continues “state-sponsored terrorism campaign”, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said in a written statement after the sixteenth round of Geneva talks.

“Terrorism can not be negotiated with, or appeased,” it said on June 8. “The Georgian side does not intend to discuss the security, or humanitarian issues related topics with Russia in Geneva, or elsewhere, while Moscow continues to mastermind terrorist attacks on the territory of Georgia.”

“If this organized terror campaign continues Georgian side will have no other choice but to reconsider its attitude towards the Geneva Discussions. By the same token, we would like to urge the international community to take up the issue of terrorist acts with the Russian Government at all levels.”

The Georgian Interior Ministry said that it had foiled two terrorism attempts in June with one of them allegedly plotted by a Russian security officer based in Abkhazia and another one by Russian officer stationed in South Ossetia.  The Georgian Foreign Ministry said that there was incontrovertible evidence proving these allegations.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Grigory Karasin, said after the sixteenth round of Geneva talks that Georgia's allegations were part of Tbilisi's "exercises in information-propaganda work." Karasin also said he was sure, that "domestic political difficulties, which the present regime in Tbilisi is experiencing" was the reason of Georgia's allegations against Russia. He said it was "an attempt to consolidate society on a quite provocative basis - anti-Russian sentiments."

"[Tbilisi] tries to portray situation as if Russia is to blame for all the misfortunes both external and internal ones," Karasin said.
