Georgia’s ex-president Shevarnadze against U.S bases in his country

Georgia’s ex-President Eduard Shevardnadze has slammed the potential deployment of U.S. military bases in Georgia as inexpedient.

He was speaking in response to speculations in the media that Washington is willing to discuss future military deployments with Tbilisi.

There has been no immediate comment from the Georgian government.
