MILLIBAND STATEMENT ON RUSSIAN WITHDRAWAL FROM GEORGIA

"Midnight represents the passing of the latest deadline for Russia to pull back its troops. Since 16 August Russia has made three public commitments to withdraw its forces. Today’s reports of Russian military withdrawal appear to be a step forward to implement these commitments. But I remain deeply concerned that Russian forces have not withdrawn to the pre 7 August position as agreed. It is imperative that Russian forces fully and speedily implement and abide by the commitments that it has made. We will consult widely to build consensus behind this position and ensure that law not force defines the conclusion of this crisis".
