NATO Seeks to Involve Georgia in "Deterring" Russia
Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Grigory Karasin expressed regret at the fact that NATO involves Georgia in the policy of the alliance to "contain" Russia.
"Unfortunately, instead of building a good-neighborly and equitable conversation with neighbors – Abkhazia and South Ossetia – Tbilisi continues to reiterate their "occupation" by Russia. Georgia's cooperation with NATO takes such forms that in fact make Tbilisi a participant in the NATO policy of deterrence", the top-diplomat stressed.
He added that this absurd thesis is used as an argument for the rapprochement of Georgia with NATO.
"The recently held NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Tbilisi clearly showed the commitment of the alliance in the Georgian direction and the desire to secure a foothold in the South Caucasus", Karasin resumed.
