NATO's position on events in Georgia changed radically: Russia's permanent representative to alliance
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 9 / Trend , E. Tariverdiyeva/
NATO's position on events in Georgia has changed radically recently, Russia's permanent representative to alliance Dmitry Rogozin told Trend over telephone from Brussels.
Large-scale military operations were launched in South Ossetia at night of August 8. Georgian troops entered Tskhinvali. Later Russian troops seized the town and drove Georgian troops back to Georgia. As a response, Tbilisi severed diplomatic ties with Moscow and announced two breakaway regions occupied territories.
Rogozin said it is not acceptable to speak openly about some things in NATO. Of course, the alliance has drawn conclusions from the situation.
"It is clear that Georgian President Mikheil Saaashvili disappointed them and I think replacement of the government in Georgia will take place smoothly from West's viewpoint. It is vital for the West," Rogozin said.
This is matter of informal discussions or close discussions, he said.
"It is unacceptable for NATO to admit mistakes or guilt publicly," Rogozin said.
