The North Atlantic Council (NAC), which is the principal political decision-making body of NATO, is scheduled to hold its fifth meeting in Georgia on October 3-4 in Georgia's coastal city of Batumi. 

The meeting is unprecedented because the council has not had five meetings in a partner nation ever, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said. 

The delegation composed of 29 members of NATO will be chaired by deputy Secretary General of NATO Rose Gottemoeller, who will also hold meetings with Georgian top officials.

The NAC meeting was initiated by the government of Georgia.

It is important the members of the council to familiarise themselves with the progress achieved by Georgia at the scene,” the Georgian Foreign Ministry reports.

The ministry says that the meeting will discuss “all the issues” related to Georgia’s integration into NATO.
