Bosnia rejected yesterday allegations from the Russian Defense Ministry that it was one of the countries which exported weaponry to Georgia.
â€œThe Bosnian State Presidency has not okayed any transfer of arms surplus to that country,â€ said yesterday the Bosnian President Haris Silajdzic in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.
Earlier on Thursday the Bosnian media cited a statement issued by the Russian Defense Ministry before the recent military intervention in Georgia, which claimed that Bosnia was on a list of countries that military assisted Georgia.
The Bosnian Deputy Defense Minister Igor Crnadak said that the Russian Defense Ministry had given misinformation and Bosnia neither sold nor donated any arms to Georgia.
The Russian Defense Ministry reported that apart from Bosnia, the United States, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Hungary, Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Israel, Serbia and Ukraine supplied Georgia with weapons.
Last year, the Russian Embassy in Bosnia protested the deal military factories from Bosnia and Georgia concluded on export of weapons worth around 10 million Euros.
