Cameron in Tbilisi

David Cameron, Britain's Conservative leader who increasingly looks like the country's next prime minister, warned in Tbilisi today (Telegraph) that

Russia must not be allowed to dictate the composition of Nato as he met with Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili to express British solidarity with the beleaguered nation.

Standing side-by-side with Georgian Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze, Mr Cameron said Russia must immediately end its “illegal” invasion of its Caucasian neighbour.

“I think it’s important that the world’s oldest democracy must stand with one of the newest when it’s been illegally invaded by another country,” he said. “We wanted to come to express the strongest possible support of the British people, British government and British opposition for Georgia, its independence and integrity."
