Rose Eilene Gottemoeller – Much work is ahead but Georgia will become NATO member

NATO has tight cooperation with Georgia, Georgia is one of our main partners – Rose Eilene Gottemoeller, Deputy Secretary General of NATO stated during a public lecture at Tbilisi State University (TSU).

According to Gottemoeller, the alliance is grateful to Georgia for its contribution to the international peace operations. “There is much work ahead but we remain committed to the decision made at 2008 Bucharest Summit and reiterate that Georgia will become a NATO member,” she said.

Gottemoeller said that NATO faces challenges such as the crisis in Ukraine in 2014 and that Georgia also faced occupation in 2008. “This was August 2008 when Russia recognized Georgia’s regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states. We support Georgia and claim that Russia should reverse the decision and fulfill the obligations as taken as per the truce agreement,” Gottemoeller said.

Rose Gottemoeller held a meeting with Davit Dondua, Deputy Georgian Minister of Foreign Affairs. The two then made joint statements for the media.
