Georgia still doesn’t meet NATO standards

2009-09-18 14:57

NATO doesn't renounce the plans to grant membership to Georgia and Ukraine, but the countries still don't meet NATO standards, stated Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen at today's NATO press conference.


Previously Georgia Times reported that President Mikheil Saakashvili claimed that Georgia's course "for integration in NATO, building a democratic independent state is irreversible".

"Georgia won't turn from the way to integration in NATO, to building a sovereign and democratic state, as it's the choice of the people of Georgia, made long ago and confirmed at the nation-wide plebiscite in January 2008", the President said.

At the summit in Bucharest in 2008 Georgia and Ukraine were promised NATO membership if they meet the Alliance standards.

In July 2009 U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden visited Georgia and promised that Washington would help Tbilisi to reach NATO standards. In particular, the USA intended to help Tbilisi in modernization of the Georgian Armed Forces.
