Georgian PM in London as NATO mulls response to Russia

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown reiterated support for Georgia Friday as NATO defence ministers resumed talks aimed at agreeing how to respond to Russia's invasion of its ex-Soviet neighbour, AFP reported.

Brown met Georgian Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze in his Downing Street Office, as the NATO ministers including US Defence Secretary Robert Gates held a second of closed-door talks nearby overshadowed by the Russia-Georgia crisis.

"We have been able to say to him that we are in full support of the territorial integrity of Georgia and we will be giving financial and economic support to Georgia, and urging other countries to do so," said Brown.

"We will be working with our European partners to ensure that there is sufficient support for the reconstruction of Georgia," he added, speaking after the talks with Gurgenidze.
