NATO will reconfirm the importance of its partnership with Georgia during a two-day visit of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) starting on Wednesday (7 September 2016).

Today, a meeting of the NATO-Georgia Commission – chaired by Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg – will bring together ambassadors from all NATO Allies with Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili to discuss Georgia’s contributions to transatlantic security, regional security, and Tbilisi’s reform progress.

On 8 September, the NATO delegation will meet with President Giorgi Margvelashvili, Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze, Defence Minister Levan Izoria, Chairman of the Parliament David Usupashvili, and Members of the Georgian Parliament.

During the visit, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and several ambassadors will participate in the Tbilisi International Conference, while Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow will open the new venue of the Information Centre on NATO and the European Union in Tbilisi. The NAC will also visit the NATO-Georgia Joint Training and Evaluation Centre, which is helping to enhance the interoperability of forces from Georgia, NATO Allies and partners through training and exercises.
