Closure of Media Outlets Not in Line with NATO Values ? Scheffer

?The imposition of Emergency Rule, and the closure of media outlets in Georgia, a Partner with which the Alliance has an Intensified Dialogue, are of particular concern and not in line with Euro-Atlantic values,? Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, the NATO Secretary General, said in a statement on November 8.

?NATO is following closely and with concern events in Georgia. I have asked NATO’s Special Representative for the Caucasus, Ambassador Robert Simmons, to express to the Georgian Foreign Minister the Alliance’s view that all parties must exercise restraint, avoid violence and act within the law,? he added.
