Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Jun.'16 / 22:45

Georgian Defense Minister Tina Khidasheli met her French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian in Paris on June 14.

“Our cooperation is in a very active phase. France is actively and meaningfully helping us in development our air defense capabilities,” the Georgian Defense Minister said after the meeting.

She said that upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw was also discussed.
