Obama urges Russians, Georgians to show restraint

Presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama condemned on Friday the violence in South Ossetia and urged the two sides to show restraint. Obama, flying to Hawaii for a vacation from the campaign trail, issued a statement declaring that "Georgia's territorial integrity must be respected." "All sides should enter into direct talks on behalf of stability in Georgia, and the United States, the United Nations Security Council, and the international community should fully support a peaceful resolution to this crisis," he said.
