Georgia on Tuesday warned the international community of selling arms to Moscow, saying any new weapon might be used against Georgia.

The comments were made by the Foreign Ministry following reports saying Moscow wants to purchase Mistral-amphibious assaultship from France.

Russian Navy Commander Vladimir Vysotsky said last week that ships of this class will increase a fleet's fighting capacity and mobility remarkably.

During a brief war between Georgia and Russia last August, Russia's Black Sea Fleet was in charge of carrying military cargo to Abkhazia region, one of the breakaway regions of Georgia.

"It is noteworthy that the Russian side makes no secret of its militarist designs saying that it is getting prepared for military assault operations similar to the aggression carried out against Georgia in August 2008," the ministry said on its website.

Russia and Georgia fought a five-day war in August last year, when Georgia attacked South Ossetia to try to retake the renegade region that borders Russia. In response, Moscow sent in troops to drive Georgian forces out of the region.
