NATO on Wednesday expressed concern over the possible building of Russian military bases in Georgia's two breakaway regions, which Moscow has recognized as independent states.
"This issue of the possibility of building Russian bases inside Georgian territory is one of real concern to the NATO allies because it does seem to be or would be in violation of Georgia's territorial integrity," said NATO spokesman James Appathurai.
NATO Secretary-general Jaap de Hoop Scheffer would raise this issue with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov when they meet on the sidelines of the Munich security conference later this week, he said.
