“The three-year framework agreement on security cooperation outlines long-term tasks of bilateral cooperation, synchronizes planning of priorities and resources and promotes development of resolute defense capabilities,” the Georgian Defense Ministry said.

It also said without elaborating the details that the document will have the following key goals: strengthening defense capabilities of Georgian armed forces; establishing effective and sustainable defense systems; enhancing interoperability of Georgian troops with NATO, ensuring professional and effective military governance.

The Georgian Defense Ministry noted that the priorities outlined in the document “will be revised and updated annually in frames of bilateral top level consultations.”
