Georgia is enhanced opportunity partner for Alliance, NATO Deputy Secretary says

NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană dubs open door policy as important for NATO.

He noted that Georgia is the enhanced opportunity partner for NATO.

“NATO will always respect the right of nations in Europe, and around the world, to choose their own path. This is not subject to anyone else’s veto. [It] is the discussion about that country and the organization they want to join. Georgia is the enhanced opportunity partner for us. We’ve been working with them for years and years. And I also know that the leadership of Georgia will be invited at the NATO Summit.

Open door policy remains sacrosanct for NATO. And I can say that Georgia is a very important partner. The Black Sea is becoming more important. We see the effect of blockade of the Black Sea in an attempt by Russia to suffocate Ukraine’s economy, and also to create food insecurity in many other parts of the world. I also know that, not in a military way, the Republic of Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, another very important partner of ours, so Allies, also European Union, we are looking in ways to make sure that these partners are supported by us in these complex moments,” Mircea Geoană answered the question asked by a reporter of GPB First Channel.
