Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine appeal to Russian Federation over Georgia

Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine appeal to Russian Federation over Georgia”

"Georgia becoming part of the North-Atlantic Alliance might trigger a awful conflict".

"I think I did the right thing when chose to exercise restraint and not to force events", said head of government Medvedev that held the post of President of Russian Federation in 2008-2012.

The five-day war began when Georgia shelled separatists in South Ossetia, giving Russian forces a pretext to pour over the border and cement control of the two breakaway regions, which seceded in the 1990s.

Meanwhile, foreign ministers of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland - all North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members - will pay a visit to Georgia's capital of Tbilisi for official talks.

Poland's top diplomat also called on Moscow to "renounce its illegal recognition of the independence of Georgian regions" (Abkhazia and Tskhinvali) and withdraw its forces in line with the 2012 ceasefire.

"Any illegitimate activity is unacceptable for us", Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said.

"We can say that Georgia's integration with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is the only guarantee for the security, stability and sustainable development of the region", Pkhaladze said.

Earlier this summer, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders discussed closer ties with Georgia and Ukraine at their summit in Brussels.

While around 75% of Georgians said they were in favour of a possible Georgia's accession to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, 81% voiced support for European Union membership.

Prominent Georgian politicians are keen for their country to join the Western military alliance, but have seen chances of joining hampered by Russian territorial incursions.

Russia's deputy foreign minister, Grigory Karasin, told Russian news agency TASS that Tbilisi and other world capitals should draw conclusions from the August 2008 events and understand that any act of aggression will inevitably entail punishment.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation expansion causes concern in Moscow, as the military capabilities of the Alliance, including nuclear weapons aimed at Russian Federation.
