Georgia seeks closer ties with Europe

As former Soviet state moves towards the West, Russia's control of its disputed territory is tightening.

    In recent months there has been a massive expansion in fence-building overseen by Russian military personnel along the administrative boundary line between the breakaway region of South Ossetia and the rest of Georgia.

    Georgians suspect the move is connected to the fact that their country is making steps towards integration in the European Union by initialing an association agreement with the bloc.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports from the boundary between Georgia and its breakaway region of South Ossetia.
