"The stronger our armed forces are, the more chances we have for the settlement of the Georgian-Abkhazian and Georgian-Osetian conflicts," Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze said on Saturday at the official graduation ceremony of the third Georgian battalion trained within the framework of the Georgian-US military program "Training and Munitions".
