Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), Jens Stoltenberg, is scheduled to take part in the North Atlantic Council (NAC) meeting in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi on September 7-8. 

It will be the Council’s fourth meeting in Georgia, which is the principal political decision-making body within the Alliance. 

During the Council meeting, implementation of the NATO Warsaw Summit results may be discussed. We believe that the country's progress in terms of democratic and economic development will also be addressed,” said Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili at today’s Governmental meeting.
This will be a very important visit. The NAC is the supreme decision-making body within NATO, hence this visit carries particular importance,” Kvirikashvili added. 

Georgia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mikheil Janelidze also commented on Stoltenberg’s upcoming visit, and evaluated it as of utmost importance. 

The Minister stressed Georgia had all "practical instruments” that were necessary for the country’s NATO integration and eventual membership.
