Georgia‘s capital of Tbilisi will host the spring session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA) this year.

Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said after a meeting with the NATO PA President Paolo Alli in Rome today that the session will be held in Tbilisi on May 26-29.

The Assembly meets twice a year the spring and autumn.

Per the NATO PA webpage, "at the Spring Session, each of the five committees holds a one-day meeting to consider reports and to meet with government officials and policy experts. On the last day, the Assembly holds a plenary sitting to conduct Assembly business, debate key issues and hear from key national and international leaders”.

Georgia’s integration with NATO was among the issues Georgian Prime Minister and NATO PA President discussed at the meeting.

In particular, the parties focused on the implementation agenda of the Substantial NATO-Georgia Package (SNGP), which "is a set of measures and initiatives aimed at strengthening Georgia’s defence capabilities and developing closer security cooperation and interoperability with NATO Members”.
