NATO exercise in Georgia will certainly be conducted2009-04-23 11:48
NATO military maneuvers planned for May in Georgia will be conducted in any case, stated James Appathurai, the Alliance spokesman - Interfax.gt-en-newsitem-inside
He added that none of the 20 countries, which submitted participation, has officially refused yet. Appathurai mentioned that NATO will hail Russian observers in case Russia decides to send any. He said that NATO doesn't comment the letters of the Permanent Representatives to the Secretary General, as well as the responses on them.
At the same time, the Foreign Ministry of South Ossetia called for NATO to abstain from the maneuvers in Georgia.
"The Alliance's flirting with the existing in Georgia fascist regime inspired the leadership of that state to break out the military aggression against the republic of South Ossetia in August 2008. The demonstrative refusal of NATO's commandment to postpone or cancel the planned for May 6th - June 1st 2009 multinational military exercise in Georgia", the statement of the Ministry claims.
The document says the agency of South Ossetia addresses NATO leaders and member countries "with a call to estimate reasonably the feasibility of conducting military exercises in the territory of Georgia, the main source of tension in the region; to make correct conclusions out of August 2008 events and to renounce the dangerous policy of drawing the aggressor state into a military bloc".
