NATO military committee visits Georgia
Tbilisi, Feb 12 : The NATO Military Committee Tuesday started a two-day visit to the South Caucasus country of Georgia following its postponement since November 2012.
During this maiden visit by NATO's highest military authority, the visiting delegation met Chief of Joint Staff of Georgian Armed Forces Major General Vakhtang Kapanadze at the airport. It is scheduled to meet the Georgian president and prime minister before having its 28+1 meeting with Georgia Wednesday, Xinhua reported.
General Knud Bartels, head of the NATO Military Committee, said at the airport that the fact that his committee is in Tbilisi is a clear indication of NATO's support for reforms of Georgia.
Georgian Defence Minister Irakli Alasania said that the visit is very important as it will be a good opportunity for NATO to look into the reforms in Georgian armed forces and assess the country's readiness for making next step on its NATO integration path.
The NATO military committee originally planned the Tbilisi visit for November 2012 but postponed it after the South Caucasus country's legislative polls held Oct 1 that year.
