Georgia, Turkey hold joint exercise

Georgian and Turkish law-enforcement agencies launched their joint exercise on the Georgian-Turkish border today, what with Georgia committing its border-control units.

The joint-exercise scenario calls for fighting smugglers, organized crime and illegal migration more effectively, reports the press center of Georgia's border-control department.

According to the departmental spokesman, the current exercise has nothing to do with events in Adzharia. The joint Georgian-Turkish exercise, which was planned some time before, isn't linked with Adzharian developments in any way, the border-control department's spokesman added.

This exercise is taking place in Georgia's Akhaltsikhi district and in Turkey's Ardagan district, as well.
