NATO informed Moscow that it doesn't intend to cancel military exercise in Georgia in the framework of Partnership for Peace program, a diplomatic source informed - ITAR TASS.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The source said that they received the oral response to the request of Dmitri Rogozin, the permanent Representative of Russia to NATO, to cancel or postpone the exercise. He highlighted that the answer practically repeats yesterday's statement of James Appathurai, NATO spokesman.
The Russian diplomat underlined that the form of the response is not satisfactory, and since the request was made in written form, the response must be official and written as well.
NATO insists on conducting the exercise according to plan, and notes that Russia, as well as other Alliance partner countries, was invited to participate. James Appathurai said that despite Russia's refusal to participate in the maneuvers the Alliance is even ready to violate some technical procedures and allow presence of Russian observers to let the Russian side see that thae maneuvers are not pointed against it.
