Ahmadinejad warns NATO over Caucasus
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the presence of NATO forces in the Caucasus would only lead to more disasters in the region.
"Regional countries are capable of defusing the current crisis without the interference of foreign forces," Ahmadinejad said in a Tuesday meeting with visiting Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian. His remarks came shortly after the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer had said earlier in the day that the alliance has a strong desire for deeper ties with Georgia in light of the recent conflict in South Ossetia. "The process of NATO enlargement will continue," said Scheffer. Press TV
