Allied Ambassadors Visited Georgia

The first trip of the North Atlantic Council after the recent Warsaw Summit took place on 7 and 8 September in Georgia. The visit, historically fourth of its kind, confirmed the unique place of this aspirant country among NATO’s partners.

In addition to the official session of the NATO-Georgia Commission, attended by Prime Minister G. Kvirikashvili, Allied ambassadors participated in a series of meetings with Georgia’s political leadership, as well as with representatives of non-governmental sector and media. The two-day program concluded with a visit to the Joint Training and Evaluation Center (JTEC), a flagship project of NATO’s assistance to Georgia’s defense sector transformation.

Together with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Bosnia and Hercegovina, Georgia belongs to nations aspiring to NATO membership. It stands among top contributors to NATO operations and Response Forces. Georgia currently provides the third largest contingent to the Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan, after the US and Germany.  The Alliance assists Georgia in implementing defense reforms, particularly through a dozen of projects assembled in the so-called Substantial Package and through the NATO Liaison Office in Tbilisi. For the long-term, the Czech Republic has been supporting Georgian Euro-Atlantic aspirations, as well NATO’s efforts in Georgia, in political terms, through financial contributions and by deploying civilian and military experts.
