Cheney says Georgia's territory must remain intact

ROME (AP) -- Vice President Cheney says Georgia's territory and independence must be respected.

He also says the dispute between Russia and the former Soviet republic needs to be peacefully resolved through "good-faith" efforts and talks.

Cheney adds that the international community is united in condemning Russia's recent military action in Georgia. He spoke after holding talks with Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi.

Cheney's visit to Italy is part of a tour that's also taken him to Georgia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
