Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on the treaty on the creation of a joint military base signed between Russia and the so-called ''Republic of South Ossetia''

 

The treaty on the creation of a joint military base was signed between Russia and the so-called "Republic of South Ossetia" in Moscow, on 7 April 2010. The treaty shall be valid for 49 years with possibility of extension for 15 more years. The analogous treaty between Russia and the so-called "Republic of Abkhazia" was signed on 17 February 2010; in this connection the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia has made a relevant statement.

Instead of carrying out its international obligations, Russia strengthens military presence on the occupied territories of Georgia and tries to place within "quasi legitimate" frames the process of creation of military bases for its occupation troops. At the same time, it is obvious that such actions of Russia just only promote destabilization in the region and create the favourable ground for constant provocations from the side of Russia and proxy regimes.

Conclusion of the so-called "treaty" between Russia and the Tskhinvali proxy regime is yet another gross violation of the universally recognized norms and principles of international law and another manifestation of the purposeful policy of occupation and annexation of integral parts of territory of Georgia. It should be particularly underlined that Russia demonstratively neglects its obligations under six point cease fire agreement and disregards such fundamental principle of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe as the consent of the receiving state to deploy the troops of a foreign country on its territory.

Given the international law, any treaty signed between the occupant country and created by this country proxy regime has no legal effects and is invalid.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia expresses its strong protest over these destructive actions of Russia and urges the international community to give due assessment to these unlawful actions, which create a direct threat to peace and stability in region.
