DES MOINES, Aug 8 (Reuters) -- Republican U.S. Presidential candidate John McCain on Friday urged Russia to immediately withdraw from Georgia and said the United States should call for an emergency United Nations session.

"Russia should immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations, withdraw all forces from the sovereign territory of Georgia," McCain told reporters in Iowa. "The U.S should immediately convene an emergency session of the U.N. security council to call on Russia to reverse course."
