Nato exercises a dangerous move
BBC NEWS | Europe | Nato exercises ‘a dangerous move’.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has condemned Nato’s “dangerous decision” to hold military exercises in Georgia next month.
He said such decisions “are aimed at muscle-flexing” and would impede the resumption of full-scale contacts between Moscow and Nato.
Moscow’s envoy to Nato said on Thursday he had asked the Western military alliance to postpone the exercises.
Nato says the exercises, from 6 May to 1 June, represent no threat to Moscow.
