Mon, 11th August 2008 RUSSIA GEORGIA CONFLICT

The Hon Julie Bishop MP Deputy Leader of the Opposition Shadow Minister for Employment, Business and Workplace Relations

Acting Leader of the Opposition

Russia must cease its military actions and unconditionally withdraw its forces from Georgia.

There should be an immediate ceasefire to allow the government of Georgia to peacefully negotiate with political leaders from South Ossetia.

With many thousands of civilians already killed and injured, and many thousands more in danger from the conflict, it is imperative that a peaceful solution to the crisis is found as quickly as possible.
