Moscow's arms blackmail

Because it is afraid that Russia will sell advanced weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles, to Iran, Israel's government has privately told all its businessmen who are involved in arms sales to Georgia to immediately cease visits there, Haaretz reports. Meanwhile, Russia is pressing for a Georgian arms embargo at the UN.


Reuters reported, quoting Carolyn Vadino, a spokeswoman for the U.S. mission to the UN, as saying that the draft resolution was “just an attempt by Russia to divert attention from its real obligation” – undertaken under the ceasefire agreement.
