Tbilisi denies info about military transit through Georgia


October 13, Fineko/abc.az. The Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has refuted the information about the use of Georgia’s airspace for military supplies to Armenia and Azerbaijan.

ABC.AZ reports that the above-said statement was made to journalists by Georgian deputy foreign minister Lasha Darsalia.

He noted that, according to the available documentation, flights that are carried out in the airspace of Georgia are exclusively humanitarian and civil in nature and fully comply with ICAO standards.

"The transit of military goods by land or air both to Azerbaijan and Armenia was suspended by the Georgian side from the very beginning of the escalation in Karabakh. If a violation is revealed and there is solid evidence, Georgia will respond accordingly, and the violator will be held accountable in accordance with international law, including before the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)," the Georgian diplomat said.
