/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The opening of Upper Lars checkpoint will pose no
threat to Georgian citizens, according to Georgia’s Deputy Foreign
Minsiter Nino Kalandadze.

Before making the decision, the issue was thoroughly considered with
experts, he told journalists.

As regards possible threats by Russia he said if the Russia wishes
to launch aggression, it can do so regardless of the checkpoint
being open.

The Upper Lars checkpoint will very probably open in March 2010.

In a Swiss-mediated discussion held Wednesday, December 23, Russian
and Georgian sides considered, among other things, the above issue
and adopted a decision.

Within a fortnight, the decision will be incorporated into a Protocol
specifying the exact date for opening the checkpoint, Gruzia-online
reported.
