/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The transfer of the arms of Russian military bases
from Georgia to Armenia will form tension in the region, US Senator
Charles Hagel supposes. "It is pleasant that Russia agreed to withdraw
its troops from Georgia. However in case the arms and ammunition
are transferred to Armenia, tension will undoubtedly appear in the
region," he said at a press conference in Baku. "Being independent
states Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia should avoid stationing of
foreign bases in their territories, as it will result in tension in
the region," said Charles Hagel, reported Interfax.
