The United States continues to call on Russia to fully withdraw its
forces from Georgia’s borders, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said
during a press conference with his Georgian counterpart Irakli
Alasania, Lenta.ru reported. Chuck Hagel arrived in Tbilisi for an
official visit on September 7.

The United States continues to call on Russia to fully withdraw its
forces from Georgia’s borders, Hagel said, adding that the United
States welcomes the restraint Georgia has shown in this situation.

“Russia’s actions here and in Ukraine pose a long-term challenge that
the United States and our allies take very seriously,” Hagel said in
his speech, according to U.S. Department of Defense.

Commenting on this statement by Chuck Hagel, political scientist
Sergey Minasyan told Panorama.am: “The U.S. defense secretary’s
statement will not produce any results. Troops will not be withdrawn”.

In Minasyan’s words, political figures and diplomats sometimes make
statements while understanding clearly that nothing will come of it.
