NATO will discuss the Case of Georgia
NATO ministerial is gathered in Belgium for emergency meeting over the crisis between Russia and Georgia, with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a special guest. The case is that the deadline for Russian troops to withdraw from Georgia has come and gone, leaving NATO frustrated and worried. Rice arrived at NATO headquarters Tuesday a day after saying that Moscow was playing `a dangerous game` by re-asserting its power across the border. NATO ministers are expected to discuss what the alliance can do to support Georgia and `deny Russia's strategic objectives,` Rice stressed.
