Georgia to cut diplomatic ties with Russia

Georgia may be cutting diplomatic ties with Russia even before some western countries do:
TBILISI, Georgia — Georgia said today it was severing diplomatic ties with Moscow to protest the presence of Russian troops on its territory. Russia criticized the move, saying it will not benefit relations between the countries.

Georgia will withdraw the remaining diplomats from its Moscow Embassy tomorrow, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Nato Chikovani, said. Georgia's parliament voted unanimously late yesterday to break off diplomatic ties with the "aggressor country."

Russia criticized the decision. "Breaking off diplomatic relations with Tbilisi is not Moscow's choice, and the responsibility lies with Tbilisi," the ITAR-Tass news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman, Andrei Nesterenko, as saying.

RIA-Novosti quoted an unnamed Foreign Ministry official as saying that Russia would have to close its embassy in Georgia if diplomatic relations were severed.

Both nations' consulates will remain open — important for the many Georgian citizens living in Russia.
Georgia is doing the right thing to cut off their relations with Putin's neo-commie region, and other western countries should already be doing the same.

Interestingly enough, Russia's relations with China seem to be weakening due to the former's aggression against Georgia. I hope they fall apart, but only time will tell. What I do wish is that China would give up its own communist approach, and especially give up the one-child policy.
