In Batumi, today is the second day of the international conference on security in the region. As in the first day, Georgian ministers discussed the issues of Georgia's accession to NATO and EU integration with NATO and State Department delegates. In turn, foreign envoys voiced old requirement: freedom of speech, democratization, transparency and honesty of the election and so on. Representatives from Washington and NATO stressed the importance of other reforms for Georgia - defense sector, for example.
On Thursday, NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow arrived in Batumi, Georgia, to participate in the meeting. Communicating with the Georgian State Minister for European Integration Gregory Baramidze, Vershbow focused upon the Georgian defense. According to NATO envoy, reforms in defense and security areas - this is a pledge of Georgia's safety from "external and internal challenges". These challenges, Vershbow said, are threatening Georgia, and this is obvious. If it will strengthen its security, the risk of these challenges will be reduced to a minimum, and then the issue of its participation in the upcoming summit in Chicago and membership in NATO and the EU would be almost solved.
Mikheil Saakashvili hasn't still arrived in Batumi. On Thursday, he left for Turkey, later - to Europe. Presidential press service argues he will attend a meeting of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC), and this is his chief purpose. In fact, Saakashvili's press service is cunning. The president traveled to Istanbul for a personal meeting with Abdullah Gul. Leaders of Georgia and Turkey discussed the same issue as in Batumi - security system in the South Caucasus. Gul stressed the importance of Georgia's accession into NATO in the near future, since this will strengthen the international security system at the regional and global level.
Accession and strengthening - this is rhetoric. The essence has remained behind closed doors. Apparently, its essence consists in following. Turkey, which has the second largest army in NATO, is actively lying hands on the Caucasus. This plays into the hand of NATO and the U.S., interested in Georgia.
