Answering the question whether it will influence the relations with Russia he said: "I think we have made clear to Russia that ultimately decisions like this rest with the people of Georgia".
"Georgia is on a path that the United States supports toward NATO membership," reminded Philip Crowley when asked about Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's calls for US military aid.
"Clearly, you know, a fundamental tenet of NATO membership is to have a military that meets NATO standards and would add to the capability of the alliance," the spokesman added, before citing the "defense requirements" of the Georgia.
Several days ago, in his interview to The Wall Street Journal Saakashvili said that Georgia's hopes to join NATO are "almost dead". He was severely criticized for this statement in the course of the debated in the parliament and later said that WSJ translated his statement incorrectly and presented apologies, whereas the WSJ editorial office refuted any apologizing.
