Rose Gottemoeller visits Georgia
This visit is an opportunity to deepen and strengthen our cooperation with Georgia even further. And to ensure that the Black Sea remains a strong source of stability and security for all the region, NATO Deputy Secretary General Rose Gottemoeller said during her remark at NATO-Georgia Commission meeting in Batumi, Adjara Autonomous region of Georgia, on Thursday.

Rose Gottemoeller underlined that Georgia is one of NATO’s closest operational partners and that NATO deeply appreciate the contributions Georgia makes to Euro-Atlantic security.

“Last year, NATO Leaders reconfirmed their 2008 Bucharest Summit decision that Georgia will become a member of NATO.

We continue to call on Russia to withdraw its troops from Georgia’s occupied regions. And to respect Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, within its internationally-recognized borders.

This visit is an opportunity to deepen and strengthen our cooperation with Georgia even further. And to ensure that the Black Sea remains a strong source of stability and security for all the region,” the NATO Deputy Secretary General said.

Georgian Prime Minister emphasized safety of the Black sea


A firm relationship with NATO is the foundation of Georgia's foreign policy and its security, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said during his speech at the NATO-Georgia Commission meeting in Batumi, Adjara region of Goorgia, on Thursday.

As the Prime Minister noted, the fifth visit of the North Atlantic Council to Georgia directly indicates NATO's support for Georgia.

“It is a great honor for me to host the North Atlantic Council in Georgia. This is the 5th visit of the North Atlantic Council to Georgia, which directly indicates NATO’s support for Georgia, for which I would like to thank you on behalf of the government of Georgia. I would also like to thank each NATO member state for supporting Georgia's territorial integrity and its independence within its internationally recognized borders and most importantly, for the development of our democratic institutions, "Giorgi Gakharia said.

According to the Prime Minister, at the Bucharest Summit in 2008, Georgia received a pledge that Georgia would become a NATO member state, and this pledge has become a stimulus for each citizen of Georgia.

"The visit of the North Atlantic Council to Batumi is symbolic one, because it has been just recently in the collaboration between Georgian and NATO we found a new space, which is related to the Black Sea security. We all understand that the safe Black Sea is a guarantee of a safe Euro-Atlantic area. Following the annexation of Crimea, Russia has been strengthened in the Black Sea area and, of course, NATO representation to the Black Sea is critically important. Colleagues, Georgia addressed NATO with the solicitation of membership after that Georgia has seen a serious advance, which was reaffirmed at the Bucharest Summit in 2008, when Georgia got a pledge from member states that Georgia was going to be the NATO member. This promise is a stimulus for every Georgian citizen, and we should all understand that Georgia’s membership is being supported by over 71 percent of the overall population, which is giving a serious firmness to our Euro-Atlantic aspirations, " the Prime Minister said.

As Giorgi Gakharia pointed out, NATO's open door policy is a guarantee of security in the region and will give hope to small nations, like Georgia.

“This year NATO is celebrating its 70 th years anniversary and the open door policy must be reaffirmed within this anniversary, which has one more time proved during recent years that this is the guaranty of safety in our region and it is giving hope to small nations, such as Georgia,” the Prime Minister said.

According to him, the example of Macedonia, which has passed a very hard path and which will soon become the 30 th member of NATO, is another hope for Georgia that its achievements, both in terms of democratization, military cooperation will be “appreciated and evaluated in the foreseeable future.”
