NATO’s intention to establish a training center in Georgia is a “provocative” step, which will worsen regional security, Alexander Grushko, Russia’s permanent representative at NATO said.
“The training center in Georgia is a step which cannot be evaluated otherwise than provocative. There is no need for NATO to set up any centers. Of course, we will be clarifying what is that all about,” Grushko said, according to the Russian news agencies.
“Emergence of NATO military facilities in Georgia is a step towards escalation of tension and worsening of regional security,” he said.
