MOSCOW, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Georgia may appeal for international military assistance depending on how the conflict in its separatist region South Ossetia develops, the head of Georgia’s National Security Council said on Saturday.
"Depending on how the situation develops, ... I don’t rule out Georgia appealing for international military assistance," Kakha Lomaia, the National Security Council secretary, told a conference call. (Writing by Maria Golovnina; Editing by Jon Boyle)
