EP to adopt EU-NATO transatlantic relations resolution that mentions Georgia

The European Parliament (EP) adopted a Resolution on EU-NATO cooperation in the context of transatlantic relations. The resolution stresses the crucial role that the EU can play in supporting NATO’s open-door policy by maintaining close political and operational synergies with its aspirant countries, including Georgia.

“The resolution calls on Member States and NATO allies alike to harness every means possible to support the strengthening of military-security cooperation with a candidate and potential candidate EU countries, and with eastern and southern neighbourhood partners, as without this the security and stability of the region cannot be assured. It also recalls the important role that the EU can play in supporting NATO’s open-door policy by maintaining close political and operational synergies with its aspirant countries, namely Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine and Georgia.

The resolution stresses the significance of contributions made by NATO’s various partner countries to Euro-Atlantic security; urges stronger coordination and the effective division of labour between the EU and NATO in cooperation with third countries, with a particular emphasis on NATO’s Enhanced Opportunities Partnership (EoP) countries; reiterates its support for both EU and NATO Enlargement,” reads the resolution text.
