After Kazakhstan, now Latvia not to take part in NATO exercises in Georgia


Latvia will not take part in the NATO military exercise in Georgia, which will take place from May 6 till June 1. Airis Rikveilis, the head of the Latvian defense minister’s office, told BNS that Latvia does not plan to participate in this exercise. "The situation is that we cannot send any additional people there. The military exercise plan has already been approved and this exercise is not in the plan," he said, adding that the financial situation is not the reason this time.
As you already know, earlier kazakhstan  refused to take part in NATO exercises.  Still Kazakhstan’s decision hasn’r had an effect on another member of the Russia-dominated Collective Security Treaty Organization. Armenia remains on the list of exercise participants, and will "definitely take part" in the exercise, a Defense Ministry spokesperson in Yerevan told Interfax.
