EU appeals to Russia not to isolate itself

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- EU leaders plan to urge Russia not to isolate itself from the rest of Europe.

They say Russia's invasion of Georgia is unacceptable under international law and has put its relations with the rest of Europe "at a crossroads."

The comments are included in a draft statement to be issued after summit talks later Monday.

The EU leaders were assessing relations with Russia after last month's war. But they face few options in punishing a giant neighbor that is a major supplier of energy to Western Europe.
