/PanARMENIAN.Net/ In a letter addressed to RA Government,
Georgian-Armenians request protection from Georgians and Azeris,
"Ãðocèÿ Online" reports, quoting Akhali Taoba newspaper. The letter was
signed by some of Armenians living in Kvemo Kartli. In the meantime,
Advisor to Georgian President Van Bayburt who is "familiar with the
letter" states that the statement contained therein is false. According
to him, the authors have used the term Samtskhe-Javahk-Tsalka, thus
falsifying not only history but also geography. That term, Georgian
official said, was used only by "United Javahk" Russian-funded
organization which pursues specific purposes.
Bayburt also denies any kind of resistance between Armenians and Azeris
residing in Georgia. With regard to Tsalka, he "rules out possibility
of any claims by Armenia, as he finds Yerevan is perfectly aware of
the situation, so the issue can never become subject to discussion."
