A day ahead of the NATO Summit in Brussels on July 11-12, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said “NATO’s door is and remains open”.
Axar.az reported citing The Financial.
Speaking at a press conference on July 10, Stoltenberg hailed Georgia’s progress on reforms and on strengthening its defence and security institutions but noted that he could not give “a specific timeline” for Georgia’s accession into the Alliance.
“The fact that both Montenegro has joined and that we most likely will decide tomorrow to invite the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to start accession talks, shows that NATO’s door is open, and we will continue to support Georgia on its way towards membership,” Jens Stoltenberg noted.
In his address, Stoltenberg also underscored that on Thursday, the NATOleaders will meet with the Presidents of Georgia and Ukraine, “two of our closest partners” and that together they would address regional challenges, and also “discuss their defence reforms and NATO’s continuing support.''
