Lithuania, Poland Call for NATO MAP for Georgia ‘As Soon As Possible’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 19 Aug.'08 / 12:17

In a joint declaration the Presidents of Lithuania and Poland, Valdas Adamkus and Lech Kaczynski, respectively, called for granting Georgia and Ukraine NATO membership action plan (MAP) “as soon as possible.”

“Russian actions in the sovereign country of Georgia have gone far beyond any reasonable steps to ensure the safety of civilians and peacekeepers and have escalated to open looting, targeted destruction of Georgian economy, landscape and nature, and killings which have the obvious signs of ethnic cleansing in the territories controlled by Russian troops,” the joint statement reads.

“Taking reference to the Bucharest NATO Declaration, which clearly stresses that Georgia and Ukraine will be NATO members, we ask the NATO leaders to instruct their ministers of foreign affairs to consider granting NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) to Georgia and Ukraine as soon as possible.”

NATO foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels on August 19 to discuss Georgia-Russia conflict.
