NATO Secretary General: Georgian issue is a matter of principle2009-12-17 11:27
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO Secretary General, said the Alliance wasn't prepared for compromise with Russia over Georgia - RIA Novosti.gt-en-newsitem-inside
When asked by journalists whether his talks with Russian leaders meant the bloc had changed its position on the August 2008 war, Rasmussen answered NATO was not ready to reach a compromise on issues of principal importance.
NATO suspended relations with Russia after 5-day war in South Ossetia and recognition of the 2 regions [South Ossetia and Abkhazia] by Moscow in August 2008, but relations have improved in recent months.
On Tuesday Rasmussen paid his first official visit to Moscow, seeking greater Russian assistance for international operations in Afghanistan.
