Georgia, Tbilisi, 20 August / Trend corr. N.Kirtskhalia / At present it is too important to achieve realization of Russia's obligations on withdrawal of its troops from Georgia, but not to discuss which measures will be taken if Moscow does not carry out its promises, David Milliband, the UK Foreign Secretary stated at a joint briefing with the Georgian President.

According to the UK Foreign Secretary, it is not acceptable to publicize ones intentions beforehand in diplomacy. "We can say exactly that Russia will face serious pressure if it does not carry out undertaken obligations," the Minister said.

"The United Kingdom unanimously supports Georgia and believes that the international law cannot be changed by force," he said,

According to Milliband, Russia behaved so within last ten years, which arouses worries of the international community. "Today NATO unambiguously supported Georgia and demanded Russia to withdraw its troops," he said.

The main is fixation of united attitude to Russia's actions, the Minister stressed. "Establishment of the NATO commission with Georgia will enable Tbilisi to integrate to the alliance more rapidly," he said.

The UK Minister stated that his country worried about humanitarian situation in Georgia and expressed readiness to render humanitarian aid.
