Georgian parliament votes to quit CIS

Georgia's parliament voted on Thursday to leave the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a Russian-led grouping of ex-Soviet states, after accusing Moscow of starting a war over separatist South Ossetia.

The chamber voted unanimously in favour of the motion.

Previous cooperation on missile defense systems has proven that the joint regional anti-missile system established by members of the Commonwealth of Independent States should be expanded, Commersant quoted Air Force Commander-in-Chief Alexander Zelin as saying.
