11337.jpegState Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration Giorgi Baramidze has told about his meeting with the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense Alexander Vershbow.


According to Rosbalt, Washington and Tbilisi representatives discussed the prospects of Georgia's joining the ranks of NATO members.

"The U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense Alexander Vershbow is directly engaged in the issues related to NATO and relationship with Georgia. For us, the talk about Georgia's future membership in NATO and the way the country should take up before it joins the Alliance is very important", - Baramidze said.

Let us remind you that last weekend American Senator John McCain stated that the White House administration should resume arms supply to Georgia.

"Our government's policy implies our support of Georgia's entrance into NATO, - he stressed. - For two years, the sale of defensive weapon to Georgia has not been authorized, considering Russia's position. This must be changed; we must supply Georgia with radars, at the very least".

According to McCain, US' allies in Central and East Europe consider the events around Georgia to be an illustrative situation; they watch whether Washington is going to support Tbilisi.

Before that, Georgian Foreign Minister David Dzhalagania had stated that the American program for training Georgian soldiers for the operation in Afghanistan "does not imply the U.S.' arms delivery to Georgia".
