NATO: Russia stoking tension by Abkhazia troop boost

NATO accused Moscow on Wednesday of stoking tensions with Georgia by announcing a troop build-up in Georgia's breakaway Abkhazia region.

 

Member states' envoys to NATO met Dmitry Rogozin, Russia's permanent representative to the alliance, for what was "a clear and sometimes sharp exchange of views, but absolutely no meeting of the minds", a NATO spokesman said. (Reuters)
