Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov.7 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia will not involve NATO in any war with Russia, Chairman of the Georgian Parliament David Bakradze said in an interview with the Washington Times on Monday.
"We assumed a unilateral commitment not to use force, so in the context of the fifth article will not be a problem for NATO in terms of any military confrontation between Georgia and Russia," Mr. Bakradze sai, adding the chance of confrontation between the parties is relatively less than in 2008.
Mr. Bakradze said:" Russia may launch negotiations at any time and Georgia is ready for them.
"However, the presence of Russian troops in Georgia's regions does not prevent the country's accession to NATO."
Military actions were launched in the Georgian territory South Ossetia on Aug.8 in 2008. Later the Russian troops occupied the Tskhinvali city and drove the Georgian military back. Russia recognised the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in late August. In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognised republics as the occupied territories.
