Medvedev Signs Cooperation Treaties with Sokhumi, Tskhinvali

Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, said Tbilisi did not “hide its revanchist attitudes” and warned Moscow would no way allow reoccurrence “of Georgia’s aggression.”

“We will not allow new military adventurism. No one should have any illusions about this,” Medvedev said on September 17 and added reiterated Moscow’s earlier allegations that Georgia’s rearmament was still continuing.

He was speaking in the Kremlin, where he hosted South Ossetian and Abkhaz leaders, Eduard Kokoity and Sergey Bagapsh, and signed treaties with these two breakaway regions, which Moscow has already recognized, on cooperation and friendship.

“We will provide each other all type of assistance, including the military one,” Medvedev said after the signing ceremony.

Russia has yet to sign separate military agreements with both of the regions, based on which, Moscow says, it plans to keep 3,700 troops in each of the region.
