NATO inspects Georgia

2010-10-12 11:56

Today NATO Assessment Commission started its work in Georgia.


It members must check the implementation of plans of conducting reforms, necessary for Georgia to join the Alliance.

The visit ends in the end of the week. NATO officials will acquaint with activities of the State Minister's for European and Atlantic Integration office, Ministry of Defense and other agencies.

Basing on the Commission's conclusions, decision on format of the further cooperation with Georgia will be made at the upcoming summit in Lisbon.

Previously NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen highlighted that decisions of the Bucharest Summit [held in April 2008] remain valid and they will join in case they wish it and meet necessary standards. He added the Alliance respects the right of both countries for other "European and Atlantic aspirations."

Yet he didn't mention any possible specific date.

David Bakradze, the speaker of the Parliament, confirmed the desire of the official Tbilisi. "Georgia will certainly become NATO member: considering this condition was officially registered, the fact of joining is a technical issue and a matter of time."

Shalva Natelashvili, the leader of pro-opposition Labour party, believes the integration on NATO and other international structures under Saakashvili is ruled out.
