Georgia Found Way to NATO?2012-03-12 13:16
The U.S. President Barack Obama must present a plan for Georgia's accession into the NATO at the NATO summit in Chicago.
According to the Gazeta.ru, Republican Senator Richard Lugar has introduced in the U.S. Senate a bill, which provides the expansion of NATO to include Georgia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Montenegro. According to the document, President Obama must present a plan for Georgia's accession into the NATO at the NATO summit in Chicago.
According to Lugar, the expansion of NATO is a "key component" to strengthen the stability and political reform in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans, the edition reported.
The draft calls on the U.S. President Barack Obama to develop a "clear road map" for making NATO membership to Georgia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and to present it at the NATO summit to be held in May. The document also proposes to continue efforts to develop cooperation between NATO and Ukraine.
In an interview to Vestikavkaza.ru, the director of the Center for Public Policy Research Vladimir Yevseyev noted that NATO itself did not show any activity towards Tbilisi. "I think that the main topic of the NATO summit in Chicago will be discussion issues of missile defense. Georgia has nothing to do with it; the place for missile defense radar was defined not in Georgia, but in Turkey; and deployed missile systems are being deployed in Romania and Poland. Georgia has no relation to any plans to build missile defensive lines.
