Bosnia-Herzegovina rejected on Thursday allegations from the Russian Defense Ministry that it was one of the countries which exported weaponry to Georgia.

"The Bosnian Presidency has not okayed any transfer of arms surplus to that country," said Haris Silajdzic, chairman of Bosnia-Herzegovina's collective presidency, the Bosnian news agency FENA reported from the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

Silajdzic made the comment after a see-off ceremony for the departure of a Bosnian contingent from Sarajevo to Iraq for its engagement in the peace mission.

Earlier on Thursday the Bosnian media cited a statement issued by the Russian Defense Ministry before the recent military intervention in South Ossetia, which claimed that Bosnia-Herzegovina was on a list of countries that military assisted Georgia.

Bosnian Deputy Defense Minister Igor Crnadak said that the Russian ministry had given misinformation and his country neither sold nor donated any arms to Georgia.

The Russian ministry reported that apart from Bosnia-Herzegovina, the United States, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Hungary, Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Israel, Serbia and Ukraine supplied Georgia with weapons.

Last year, the Russian Embassy protested the deal military factories from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Georgia concluded on export of weapons worth around 10 million euros, according to Bosnian news reports.
