Foreign Ministers to discuss stepping up support for partners under Russian pressure, including Georgia, NATO Secretary-General says

“One of the issues that will be discussed at the foreign ministers’ meeting today and tomorrow is how can we step up support for all those partners, which are under Russian pressure and, of course, Georgia is one of them, said Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary-General ahead of the meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers.

According to NATO Secretary-General, Georgia is among the alliance’s close and highly-valued partners.

“I believe that one of the lessons we should learn from the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is that it is important that all those who believe in democracy and rule of law need to provide support to close and highly-valued partners like Georgia.

It is better to support them soon than later and therefore, one of the issues that will be discussed at the foreign ministers’ meeting today and tomorrow is how can we step up support for all those partners, which are under Russian pressure and, of course, Georgia is one of them.

Russia controls part of Georgian territory. And we will look into how we can provide more support both when it comes to everything from cyber to security communications, capacity building and all the ways that strengthen Georgia in resisting pressure from Russia,” NATO Secretary-General said.
