If Georgia rejects NATO, Russia will appropriate other territories – Speaker

Georgian losses will be larger and the risks will be higher, if Georgia refuses from participation in NATO mission in Afghanistan.

Such information has been announced by Georgian Parliament Speaker David Usupashvili on the air of «9th Channel» TV company, Georgia Online informs.

«I have often heard that Russia will return the occupied territories, if Georgia rejects NATO. I strongly believe that in such case Russia will simply appropriate other territories. It will return nothing, if Georgia rejects NATO.

Accordingly, the risk is much higher in case we do not stand with the democratic world for ensuring our own safety with them. Accordingly, our strive for NATO serves this exact objective», – Mr. Usupashvili has declared.
