Saakashvili to Meet NATO Secretary General in Brussels
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 2 Apr.'12 / 18:24

NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said he would discuss “the progress Georgia has achieved” in cooperation with NATO when he meets President Saakashvili in Brussels on April 3.

NATO-Georgia Commission, a main mechanism through which NATO-Georgia cooperation is supervised, will hold a meeting in Brussels on April 3.

“We will take stock of the progress achieved within that cooperation framework,” Rasmussen said at a news conference on April 2 after asked about his planned meeting with President Saakashvili. “We will discuss regional security situation and finally we will discuss upcoming Chicago Summit.”

“I am sure that the Allies will express their very strong appreciation of the significant Georgian contribution to our operation in… Afghanistan,” he continued. “Georgia is already one of the largest contributors and Georgia has decided to double its contribution, which will bring Georgia to becoming the largest non-NATO contributor to our operation in Afghanistan and of course all allies strongly appreciate that. It’s a very strong testament to Georgian commitment to trans-Atlantic alliance.”

“Obviously we will reiterate what we decided already in 2008 at the NATO summit in Bucharest that Georgia will become a member of NATO, provided of course Georgia fulfills the necessary criteria,” Rasmussen added.
