Georgian Defense Minister David Tevzadze assured on Saturday that the country's armed forces did not intend to interfere with politics.
Tevazadze stated that "the armed forces are not a means to use in the intra-political struggle. Revolution, counterrevolution were the terms used in internal politics with which the army would not interfere." He made that statement in response to reports in Georgian mass media on a military rebellion allegedly being prepared in the country.
