Hello, Welcome to the latest global news recorded at 0300 BST on Tuesday, the 20th of August. I'm Mark Whitaker with the selection of highlights from across the BBC World Service news today.
Coming up, Russia rejects proposed Security Council RESOLUTION on south ossetia accusing the french changing the peace plan.but warning from america NATO will stand firm behind georgia.
"You have used your military power against small neibouring staste? you have demonstrated that you can tell us civilian populations? we have demonstrated that you'll not be able to underline demoncracy  in the Georgian states."


The crisis in the demoncratic repulic of Congo when millins of dying, not from violence but from easily preventable diseaces. And Liv* has die.and their tribute from CC ,ZAMBIA'S first president. The frost settling again over Georgia and South Ossetia. Tuesday saw a dramatic ramping up of regelate between western nations and Russia. The Russian ambassador the UN security council has rechecked the draft resolution on Georgia proposed by France, saying it fails to incroporate the terms of cease-fire deal broke by French president Nicolas Sakosy last week. Speaking after the meeting of UN. Italian * said French demand for the immediate withdraw will * earlier agreed by Russia and France.


"There are serious political work principles, and there is propaganda. And sometimes when I listen to colleagues ,one is sort of amazed. you were listening to ambassador Wolf I also was listening to him and he kept repeating immediate withdarw of russian forces. Immediate withdraw all of Russian forces immediate withdraw all russian forces.this is not the warning this is not the language  of these priciples. The language and the logic of the six principles is exactly as it described and therefore to have it also incorporated in the French resolution. It’s not accurate, and it’s wrong. 


Early in the day, NATO leaders meeting in Brussels had warned that normal relations with Russia will be impossible while Russian troops were still on Georgian soil. Russian president Medvedev has said that his troops will pull back in the positions agreed in the ceasefire in the next few days.


And as the war of words continues, it starts remind us of the devastation that the short conflicts has caused. Because according to figures released by the United Nations, nearly 160,000 people in the region have fled their homes. The UN high commissioner for refugees, António Guterres, told the BBC the vast majority are fled into Georgia and now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.


* people that have fled into north Ossetia, the Russian situation. And there are about 128,000 in Georgia. Most of them can’t be supported. And it is very important that the international community gives a strong help to the UN agency, to the NGO in order to assist these population that fled the conflict in that difficult circumstances.


In Brussels, meanwhile, the show of unity for NATO would be member georgia has been strong in flight on concrete action. but US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told BBC Congetters that NATO would been as tough as it needed to be.


"The strongest statement that you can make to russia right now is you have used your milliary against small neibouring state. You demonstrated that you can bomb civilian ports, that you can terrorize civilian populations ,you have demonstrated that you can occupy a railway or a stragetic highway. You have demonstrated we have demonstrated that you'll not be able to undermine democracy, and the Georgian State. And so what strategetic object have you achieved. That is the really the strongest message that could be sent to russia right now.That is also the case that we have sent a message to Russia that NATO will not permit a new line to develop in Europe between those states that are a part of the transatlantic structures and those states that still aspire. And that’s why the creation of the NATO-Georgia Commission is important, why it’s important that the Ukraine-NATO Commission will meet next week and so forth.

 

But do you understand Russia’s concerns about its own backyard and those pro-Western governments that are there and your alliance with them? I mean, surely, the U.S. would be concerned if suddenly Russia announced that it was going to reban the Cuban military.

 

Well, we will certainly not be concerned if Russia wanted to have good relations with democratic states in Latin America. In fact, we have encouraged. And have looked favorably on Russian good relations with the democracies of Latin America. What does Russia have to fear from a small democracy on their border? A state that, yes, is friendly to the West, but we’ve always encouraged to be friendly.
