US Ambassador: Georgia Will Find It Hard to Meet Moscow's Requirement That Terrorists in Pankisi Gorge Be Neutralized

'Moscow's requirement that all terrorists who have found sanctuary in the Pankisi Gorge be neutralized will be very hard for Georgia to fulfill,' said US Ambassador to Russia Alexander Vershbow at a press conference today in Moscow. According to Rosbalt's correspondent, the Ambassador stated that 'Georgia's ability to act against the groups of bandits must be assessed realistically'. The diplomat highlighted the fact that the anti-criminal operation launched by Georgia's armed forces in Pankisi is not yet over, but 'has already yielded several positive results'.
