YEREVAN (YERKIR) – The part of the ammunition being withdrawn to
Armenia from the Russian base in Akhalkalaki (Georgia) cannot lead
to political destabilization in the region, Russian Vice-Premier,
Defense Minister Sergey Ivanov stated at a news conference in Baku
May 30 when commenting on the outcomes of the sitting of the CIS
Council of Ministers.

“For most part impedimenta but not ammunition is being withdrawn,”
Sergey Ivanov said emphasizing that Russia doesn’t violate the
obligations undertaken within the Conventional Armed Forces in
Europe Treaty.

The Russian Minister noted that the major part of the equipment is
being withdrawn from Akhalkalaki to Russia via Azerbaijan. “As for the
Batumi base, the terms of its withdrawal will be determined later,”
Ivanov resumed.
