"We split with Russia primarily on the issue of Georgia", - Gordon is cited by Rustavi-2.
According to Novosti-Georgia, Gordon also stated that the recently held NATO and OSCE summits should lead to significant improvement of relations between US and Russia.
Let us remind you that Philip Gordon has more than once raised the issue of Georgia, thus discussing American-Russian relationship. For instance, in October, he reported that despite the discrepancies between Russia and NATO, the Alliance is still interested in RF.
Gordon reaffirmed the support of Georgia's policy in general and notably its aspiration for NATO and reminded that Russia has got discrepancies with the US on the matter.
"We regret that Russia stopped its rapprochement with NATO. Despite the discrepancies, including those on the Georgian issue, there are no clear reasons to impede Russia and NATO's cooperation. I think the alliance is very much interested in Russia", - Gordon said.
In Gordon's opinion, to ensure "transparency" in the Georgian region, OSCE observers should be present in the conflict zones.
