U.S. Concerned with Russia’s Support for ‘Separatist Regimes’

Russia’s support for separatist regimes is a source of concern, Daniel Fried, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, told reporters in Washington on October 5.

“We don’t understand how it supports stability in the South Caucasus to overfly Georgia or militarily support breakaway regimes,” he said. “We far prefer peaceful diplomatic settlements of these problems than any party’s adventurism, and there’s more than enough adventurism homegrown that it doesn’t have to be imported from outside, and we don’t like any adventurism.”

Fried said that the United States wanted to cooperate with Russia, “but we also work with and support our friends and our principles.”

Condoleezza Rice, the U.S. Secretary of State and Robert Gates, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, will visit Moscow on October 12-13.
