Baramidze: Georgia might be admitted to NATO without Abkhazia

11219.jpegIn the opinion of the Georgian Vice Prime Minister Giorgi Baramidze, territorial problems are no obstacle for Georgia's entrance into NATO, Itar-Tass reports.


When reminded that the countries being involved in border disputes may hardly reckon upon entrance into NATO, Baramidze objected flatly: "Yes, they can".

Having referred to a real precedent, he named FRG. "Germany was half-occupied by the Soviet Union; still, it entered into NATO, - he noted.

Border disputes are no obstacle and I'd like to stress that NATO has never mentioned them as a condition of admitting Georgia to its ranks".

As to Tbilisi's military cooperation with the US and other countries, according to the interlocutor, Georgia "has the right to choose its partners" in this field, being a sovereign state. The question was put in connection with Israel's recent statement that it would give up supplying weapons to Georgia. "If someone decides to break cooperation with us, let him do it, and if someone decides to initiate it - that's their own business as well", - Baramidze stated, underlining the "delicacy" of the subject.
