Russia needs to respect the 2008 ceasefire agreement that was adopted after the Georgian-Russian war. This is what US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said during a news conference in Tbilisi, responding to a question whether Georgia should join the '3+3' format (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Russia, Iran and Turkey), Georgia News reports.

In regard to the format, Austin said he would like to state that Russia, which has occupied 20% of Georgian territory, needs to respect the agreement signed in 2008 before talking about a new platform. He added that Russia needs to strengthen regional cooperation before talking about cooperation with the countries of the South Caucasus.
