US is not ready to accept Georgia into NATO

2012-05-11 12:18

As reported by the VZGLIAD, the United States believe it's not time to talk about Georgia's acception into NATO, since Georgia has not reached the level required for the candidates for membership. At the same time, the United States are ready to provide Georgia assistance to help it to reach respective requirements.


Speaking at a hearing in the international committee of the U.S. Senate, Deputy Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs Philip Gordon stated, "Our military aid to Georgia is designed to support the country's defense reform, as well as enhance its capacity to participate in the ISAF operation in Afghanistan and ensure the criteria for NATO membership compliance".

He added that Mikhail Saakashvili and Barack Obama "have agreed to deepen cooperation" in January. Gordon noted that Georgia has made ​​great strides on the path to NATO membership, and demonstrated a desire to join the Organization. But Georgia shouldn't expect it in the near future. 

Recall, earlier, the U.S. administration stated that the issue of Georgia's NATO membership would not be discussed at the upcoming summit to be held in Chicago on May 20-21.
