UN Security Council to Discuss Russia’s Overflight
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 16 Jul.'08 / 09:51

The Georgian Foreign Ministry said the UN Security Council would be convened on July 21 to discuss the violation of Georgian airspace by Russian military aircraft.
The Russian Foreign Ministry admitted on July 10 that Russian aircraft had flown a sortie over Georgia’s breakaway South Ossetia on July 8 to “cool hot heads in Tbilisi” and to prevent, as it said, a planned military incursion into South Ossetia by Georgian forces.

The Georgian Foreign Ministry said it was “an act of military aggression” and would seek UN Security Council censure of Russia for it.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said on July 14 it was ready to discuss its action at the UN Security Council session.
