Georgian President requests U.S. support in war with Russia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili stated that Russia started war with Georgia.



"It's in the interests of the United States to extend a helping hand to Georgia. Russia is fighting a war with us in our own territory," Saakashvili said in an interview with CNN.



"Georgia will withdraw its unit from Iraq to give a proper response to Russian aggression," he said, RBC reports.



For his part, Georgia's National Security Council head Alexander Lomaia warned Friday that Moscow and Tbilisi will be in "a state of war" if reports of Russian tanks, military trucks and troops entering South Ossetia prove true.
