    MOSCOW, February 5 (RIA Novosti) - The situation in Georgia may escalate into an open armed confrontation. This opinion was expressed by the secretary general of the Collective Security Council of the Member-States of the Organization of the Collective Security Treaty, Nikolai Bordyuzha, on Thursday in Moscow. "We are well aware that the situation in Georgia may escalate into an open armed confrontation," said Bordyuzha.

    In connection with this, Bordyuzha said that the Organization of the Collective Security Treaty is closely following the events in the republic.

    "I do not conceal that the situation in Georgia is within the field of vision of the CSTO. We are concerned about the preservation of Georgia's territorial integrity, relations between the authorities and autonomous entities, the tendency towards the aggravation of the situation," he said.

    Answering the question of the journalists, he noted that Georgia-CSTO cooperation may be examined during the visit of Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili to Moscow, provided Georgia shows interest in the CSTO, of course." The CSTO includes Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Armenia.
