Rasmussen: Georgia is NATO's 'Dedicated' Partner
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 4 Dec.'12 / 15:47

NATO foreign ministers will “recognize the progress that Georgia has made” when they meet their Georgian counterpart, Maia Panjikidze, on December 5, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said before the start of a two-day NATO foreign ministerial meeting in Brussels on Tuesday.

He said that NATO foreign ministers would “encourage all parties [in Georgia] to keep up the momentum of democratic reforms.”  

Rasmussen described Georgia as “dedicated partner and one of the countries which aspires to join the Alliance.”

“Georgia has shown exemplary commitment to our mission in Afghanistan and tomorrow we will discuss with all of our partners in ISAF the question of long-term funding for the Afghan forces as part of broad international effort,” Rasmussen said.
