German Official Says Georgia ‘Breaking International Law’
The No. 2 at the German foreign ministry on Saturday said Georgia is breaking international law by launching military action to reclaim South Ossetia.
Gernot Erler said Tbilisi had breached a 1992 ceasefire agreement struck with Russia over the renegade Caucasus enclave, monitored essentially by Russian peacekeepers.
“It’s an insane, bloody war which will surely do nothing to resolve the problem of this separatist Ossetian province,” said Erler, deputy to Frank- Walter Steinmeier.
