NATO Sec Gen: We are working how we can further strengthen our partnership with Georgia

“We are now working on how we can provide more support and how we can further strengthen our partnership with Georgia,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday.

Jens Stoltenberg hopes during the Madrid Summit the leaders “will recommit to our open-door policy and also restate what we said before since the Bucharest Summit on Georgia and NATO membership.”

“​I met with the Georgian Defence Minister [Juansher Burchuladze] yesterday and he also participated in the meeting yesterday evening. We stressed, the allies and myself underlined the importance of stepping up support both political and practical support for allies that are vulnerable for Russian interference and of course, Georgia is very much among them because Georgia has already suffered the consequences of military intervention from Moscow in 2008. Therefore, we are now working on how we can provide more support and how we can further strengthen our partnership with Georgia.

It was a very constructive and good meeting with the Georgian Defence Minister and allies also expressed the need to further step up the cooperation with our close partner Georgia,” NATO Secretary General stated.
