I think it will be quite clear in the declaration at today’s NATO Summit just how important Georgia remains on the NATO agenda - Kelly Degnan

I think it will be quite clear in the declaration that is released and agreed by all of the allies at today’s NATO Summit just how important Georgia remains on the NATO agenda. Such a statement made today the US Ambassador to Georgia.

“We have just had several high level visits from the US government. In many cases, the very first trip that US officials were able to make post COVID was here to Georgia, to this region.

I think that sends a strong message about our support for Georgia. And I think it will be quite clear in the declaration that is released and agreed by all of the allies at today’s NATO Summit just how important Georgia remains on the NATO agenda.

There are references to Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. There are references to reiterating the Bucharest summit commitment that Georgia will become a member of NATO, and there are clear messages to Russia about the importance of fulfilling its obligations under the 2008 treaty, reversing its recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and allowing humanitarian corridors to function in the way they need to, so that the tragic stories that we hear far too often stop”, - said Kelly Degnan.
