Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 6 Dec.'16 / 18:34

The U.S. Department of Defense and the Georgian Defense Ministry signed a framework agreement on security cooperation for 2016-2019 that will promote further development of Georgia’s defense system, according to the Georgian Defense Ministry.

The agreement, which is a supporting document to the memorandum on “deepening the defense and security partnership” signed between U.S. and Georgia in July, was signed by Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria and U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Michael Carpenter in Tbilisi on December 6.

“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.”
