President of Russia: NATO maneuvers in Georgia threaten complications

2009-04-17 15:54

The intentions of NATO to conduct the multi-national military exercises in Georgia do not favor approximation with Russia and threaten complications, stated Dmitry Medvedev, the President of Russia, at the press conference.


"Such decisions are disappointing and do not facilitate the resumption of full scale contacts between the Russian Federation and NATO", the Russian leader stated. "We will follow what happens there in the most thorough manner and take one or another decision if need be", he underlined.

"When one or other military block holds exercises at places of high level of tension and where everything is not that simple there is danger of any kind of complications", Medvedev believes.

According to the President, in the aspect of danger to the common situation, the maneuvers in Georgia can be compared with the ones in the Middle East or near the North Korean borders.

"I am sure that it will not add positive emotions to the peoples of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, as decisions of this kind are aimed at military demonstration, muscle flexing, at building up the military component" Medvedev said. "This decision appears to be short-sighted and unpartner-like," he added.
