Georgia could lose rebel regions: Russia NATO envoy
Georgia's Moscow-backed breakaway regions will start the process of "real secession" if NATO gives Georgia a signal it can join the alliance, Russia's ambassador to NATO said on Tuesday.

"As soon as Georgia gets some kind of prospect from Washington of NATO membership, the next day the process of real secession of these two territories (Abkhazia and South Ossetia) from Georgia will begin," Dmitry Rogozin told Reuters in a telephone interview.
