"Georgia is one of the closest and reliable partners of NATO. With their professionalism and devotion, our troops contribute significantly to Afghanistan's peacekeeping operations through NATO's Resolute Support Mission or EU missions in Central African Republic and Mali," Georgia PM Irakli Garibashvili said in his address released concerning NATO's 72nd anniversary.
In his words, aspiration to NATO integration – the key priority of Georgia's external and security policy – relies on the broad public and political consensus reflected in the constitution.
"Georgia achieved the greatest progress by collaborating with the alliance to develop democracy and perfection of military infrastructure.
Our government deepened and strengthened this collaboration, based on the principle 'More NATO in Georgia and More Georgia in NATO," Garibashvili said.
