Georgia, Tbilisi, Sep. 26 / Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia /
Russia's demarcation of the so-called border between Georgia and the separatist regions are in violation of international obligations undertaken by Russia, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said to Georgian journalists in New York.
He reiterated NATO's position on territorial integrity and the sovereignty of Georgia.
"NATO supports the territorial integrity of Georgia and calls on Moscow's fulfillment of its international obligations, while today's Russian military actions in Tskhinvali are contrary to these obligations," Rasmussen said.
The NATO Secretary General stressed that the alliance will continue its policy of non-recognition regarding Georgia's separatist regions.
The Georgian Foreign Ministry said that since the beginning of summer, the Russian military began to build restrictive structures on the so-called border between Georgia and its separatist regions.
Large scale military action was launched in South Ossetia on August 8, 2008. Later, Russian troops occupied Tskhinvali and expelled the Georgian military.
Russia recognised the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in late August. In response, Tbilisi ended diplomatic relations with Moscow and has called the two unrecognised republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia occupied territories.
