Russian Diplomat on Georgia's NATO Integration
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Nov.'12 / 18:39

Russia's ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko said on November 30 that Georgia’s NATO integration would have serious consequences on Russia’s relations with the Alliance, as well as on security in Europe.

“As far as Georgia is concerned, I am sure that NATO understands the seriousness of consequences that any step towards further engagement of Georgia with the Alliance will have for the Russian-NATO relations and European security. It is impossible that they do not understand it,” Grushko told a group of Russian journalists in Brussels, according to RIA Novosti news agency.
 
“It would be absolutely unrealistic from NATO to expect that the policy of Georgia’s rapprochement with the Alliance might somehow affect our relations with South Ossetia and Abkhazia as well as on our commitments to protect them,” said Grushko, who was Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister before becoming ambassador to NATO last month.
