NATO maneuvers in Georgia may lead to another Cold War2009-05-07 12:34
NATO maneuvers in Georgia may provoke the retreat to the Cold War, believes Boris Gryzlov, the Speaker of the State Duma [lower chamber of the Russian parliament].
"NATO steps go beyond the reasonable frames, these are practically the attempts to resume the Cold War", he said - RIA Novosti.
"The concentration of the armed forces near South Ossetia and Abkhazia cannot but alert us ", - отметил он.
NATO explains that the maneuvers were planned a year ago, Gryzlov reminded.
But in his view, very significant events occurred within that year; war in South Ossetia and the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and these events implied changes in the planned maneuvers.
At the same time, Russia will not sever the dialog with NATO, the Speaker said.
He mentioned that the State Duma delegation headed with Lubov Sliska, the Vice-Speaker, will come to the international conference NATO holds on the occasion of its 60th anniversary. "We'll voice all the complaints of NATO ", the Speaker noted.
"Today, even despite NATO's steps, we must not sever the dialog", Gryzlov stated.
