Georgia Ceases CFE Treaty Vis-à-Vis Russia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Nov.'11 / 20:57

Following some NATO-member states Georgia too has announced about stopping sharing military information under the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) with Russia.

In a statement before the Joint Consultative Group, OSCE’s body dealing with questions relating to compliance with the provisions of the CFE, Georgia said on November 29 that it was ceasing its obligations under the treaty only vis à vis Russia and would continue sharing data with other nations in the treaty.

Russia suspended participation in the treaty, which sets limits on non-nuclear arms that countries can deploy between the Atlantic and Russia's Ural mountains, in 2007. The Georgian Foreign Ministry said that Tbilisi was “adhering firmly” its commitments under the treaty in respect of Russia.

Withdrawal from the treaty in respect of Russia means that Georgia will not provide military-related information to Moscow in the annual exchange as envisaged by CFE and will not accept Russian inspections of Georgian military facilities.
