Saakashvili: Obama backed Georgia

2010-11-22 11:37

According to Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of Georgia, the U.S. president Barack Obama gave a high assessment to the democratic reforms in republic and supported country's NATO aspirations - RosBalt.


"NATO gave a high rating to our political and democratic, as well as security, reforms and also backed Georgia's road to NATO membership...This was an important stage," he said - RIA Novosti.

Ukraine's renunciation to join NATO could have threaten Georgia's ambitions, as Saakashvili apprehended, but in fact didn't.

Previously Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO Secretary General, repeatedly refused to say possible date of granting Membership Action Plan [MAP] to Georgia.

At its Bucharest summit in 2008 NATO rejected Ukraine and Georgia's bids, but vowed that the two countries would eventually become part of the Alliance.
