Georgia joining North Atlantic Treaty Organisation could trigger awful conflict

Georgia joining North Atlantic Treaty Organisation could trigger awful conflict

During a recent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, the organization's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reiterated intention to grant membership to Georgia, but did not say when it could happen.

"There is an unresolved territorial conflict. and would they bring such a country into the military alliance?" he said. "And it is an absolute challenge", - said the Prime Minister, who, as President, sanctioned in 2008, the input units of the Russian 58th army in South Ossetia, and the outbreak of hostilities on Georgian territory.

By the end of the conflict on August 12, several hundred people had died and Moscow subsequently recognized South Ossetia and Georgia's other breakaway region, Abkhazia, as independent states and has stationed military forces there ever since.

Unfortunately, Russian military presence in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia continues in violation of global law and commitments undertaken by Russia under the 12 August 2008 agreement, mediated by the European Union.

In turn, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius added that, unfortunately, the war in Georgia in 2008 failed to stir up the world.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the "Russian military presence in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia continues to violate worldwide law".

"What Russia did and is doing against a sovereign government is a war between Russia Georgia, it's aggression, it's an occupation and it's a violation of all worldwide norms", president Giorgi Margvelashvili told ministers from Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Ukraine at a meeting in the capital Tbilisi.

Foreign ministers from Lithuania, Latvia, and Poland, and Ukrainian deputy prime minister paid a visit to Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia on the 10th anniversary of the war.

He said Georgia had no chance of winning a war against its giant northern neighbour, but gave "the aggressor a smack in the jaw" when it offered resistance and won "time until the worldwide community woke up". The results of the referendum for joining North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supported 77% of Georgian voters.

During the July's NATO summit held in Brussels, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg had said Georgia would become a member of NATO.
