Russia warns of 'horrible conflict' if Georgia joins NATO
"It's not clear why this is needed", Medvedev told Russia's Kommersant FM radio station, which broadcast fragments of an interview with him on Monday.
An attempt by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to incorporate the former Soviet republic of Georgia could trigger a new, "horrible" conflict, Russia's prime minister said Tuesday in a stern warning to the West marking 10 years since the Russia-Georgia war. He has warned against Georgia joining North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Ten years ago at the NATO summit in Bucharest the heads of state, NATO promised that Ukraine and Georgia will eventually become NATO members.
The Prime Minister also noted that the war in Georgia in 2008 could have been avoided.
Russian Federation swiftly responded with a military operation in defence of the separatists and rapidly overwhelmed the Georgian forces, even threatening to take Tbilisi during the five-day war.
The joint trip to Tbilisi followed in the footsteps of the late Polish President Lech Kaczyński, who in August 2008 organised a visit in support of Georgia.
In the summer of 2008, Georgian forces launched an offensive against separatists in South Ossetia, a small pro-Russian region on the border of the two countries. Medvedev suggested that before entering South Ossetia, Saakashvili spoke with his patrons in the United States.
"Georgia once again calls on the Russian Federation to stop its illegal actions on the territory of Georgia and to fulfill its worldwide obligations, in particular, to revoke the recognition of occupied Abkhazia and South Ossetia as "independent states" and to fully implement the August 12 ceasefire agreement mediated by the European Union", the statement of Official Tbilisi reads. We understand that if any other country claims that they are part of its national territory, this may have severe consequences.
"There is an unresolved territorial conflict. and would they bring such a country into the military alliance?" he said.
