(Interfax) - The presidents of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania, in a telephone conversation with their Georgian counterpart, expressed support for Georgia in today's Russian-Georgian row but urged the Georgian leader to seek a negotiated solution, Polish President Lech Kaczynski said on Saturday, reports Trend.

Kaczynski, Ukraine's Viktor Yuschenko, and Lithuania's Valdas Adamkus, in talking to Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, "expressed our support on the one hand, and, on the other, we were trying to convince him to look for peaceful means of resolving the conflict," Kaczynski told reporters in Lviv, Ukraine.
