Comments Off on NATO supports Georgia membership, but not timetable set

NATO ambassadors arrived here Wednesday for their third visit since 2008, with the alliance chief reiterating Georgia will join the military alliance but not indicating when.

The ongoing visit was put off from late last year after the then opposition coalition won the Georgian legislative polls in October.

A NATO-Georgia Commission is now in session with the participation of NATO ambassadors and Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili along with Georgian defense and interior ministers.

While addressing a press briefing before the commission session with Ivanishvili, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the NATO resolution made in its Budapest summit in April of 2008 still stood.

NATO member states agreed in the Hungarian capital Georgia would become a member but set no timetable.
