Defense Minister: It is necessary to implement the main strategic objectives regardless of the statements made by the Russian side

It is necessary to implement the main strategic objectives of our country regardless of the statements made by the Russian side, - said Defense Minister Levan Izoria.

According to him, the ruling team's policy is to maintain peace in the region.

"Of course, part of our policy is to maintain peace and security in the region. The multinational military exercise Agile Spirit 2019 is part of this policy. So even when it is very emotional to listen to the statements that we’ve been recently hearing, it is necessary to maintain common sense and implement the main strategic tasks of our country that are based on the choice of our population. Therefore, regardless of individual statements, we will continue this policy in the future too", - said Izoria.
