Hello welcome to the latest global news recorded at 0300 hours BST on Wednesday, 20th of August. I’m Mark Whittaker with the selection of highlights across BBC world news today.

Coming up

 

Russia rejects a proposal of Security Council resolution on south Ossetia, accusing the French of changing the peace plan but warning from America-NATO will stand firm behind Georgia.

“Do you have used power against the small neighboring state? You have demonstrated that you can terrorize civilian populations. We have demonstrated that you will not be able to undermine democracy and the Georgian states.”

The crises in the Democratic Republic of Congo where millions are dying not from violence but from easily preventable diseases. And Levy Mwanawasa, Zambia leader has died. We’ll hear a tribute from Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s first president.

 

The frost setting over Georgia and south Ossetia Tuesday saw a dramatic raping up of the retry between western nations and Russia. The Russian ambassador of the UN security council has rejected the draft resolution on Georgia’s proposing by France, saying it fails to incorporate the terms of ceasefire deal broke by the French President Nicolas Sarkozy last week. Speaking after the meeting at the UN, // said French demands for an immediate withdraw were // with early principles agreed by Russia and France.

“There’s serious political word implemented principles and there’s propaganda and sometimes when one listens to colleges, one’s a sort of amazed. You were listening to ambassador Wolf, I also was listening to him and he kept repeating immediate withdraw of Russia forces, immediate withdraw of Russia forces, this is not the wording, this is not the language of this principles, the language and logic of six principles is exactly as has described. And therefore they have it also incorporated into the French draft resolution is not accurate and is wrong. ”

 

Early in the day, NATO leaders meeting in Brussels had warned that normal relation with Russia would impossible while Russia troops were still on Georgian soil. Russia’s President Medvedev has said that his troops will pull back to the place agreed in the ceasefire in the next few days. And as the war of words continue. It starts reminder of devastation the short conflict has caused, because according figures released by the United States, nearly 160,000 people in the region have fled their homes. UN high commission for refugees Antonia Geterl told the BBC the vast majority fleeding to Georgia are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

“We have a lot of thousand people that have fled into Russia Confederation and there are about 128,000 in Georgia. Most of them can’t be supported // international community give // helps to the UN agencies, to the MTO, in order to assist the population that fled conflict in difficult circumstances.”

 

In Brussels meanwhile, the show of unity for NATO’s would-be-member Georgia has strong if light on concrete action, but US State Secretary Condoleezza Rice told the BBC // the NATO was being as taught as it needed to be .

“The strongest statements you can make to Russia now is you have used military power against the small neighboring state. You have demonstrated that you can bomb civilian ports and you can terrorize civilian populations, you have demonstrated that you can occupy a rail way or a strategic high. You have emonstrated; we have demonstrated that you will not be able to undermine democracy and the Georgia state. And so what strategic objective have you achieved that is really the strongest message that could be set to Russia right now. And it is also the case that we have sent a message to Russia that NATO will not permit a new a line to develop your state between those states that are part of the transplanted structures and those states that are still spire. That’s why the creation of NATO-Georgia commission is important that the Ukraine NATO-commission will meet next weekends and so forth.”

 “But do you know that Russia concerns about its own backyard and those pro-western governments that there are your lines with, I mean surely the UN would be concerning that Russia said it’s going to revamp the Cuban military. ”

“Oh, we would certainly not be concerned if Russia wanted to have good relations with democratic states in America. In fact, we have encouraged. I have look favorably on Russian good relations with democracy states in America. What does Russia have to fear from small democracy on their border? A state, yes that is friendly to the west. We’ve always encouraged friendly to Russia as well.”
