Russians halt Nato Co-operation

Russia has told Nato that it is halting military co-operation over the continuing crisis in Georgia, an alliance spokeswoman has said.

The Nato spokeswoman said it had been notified of the decision through military channels. She said the alliance "takes note" of the decision but had no further reaction to it.

Nato and Russia began co-operating on various projects following an agreement in 2002.


Meanwhile, the separatist leaders of Georgia's breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia have urged Russia to recognise their independence at mass rallies.
