US President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for the post of State Secretary Antony Blinken has stated that if Georgia meets the criteria for NATO membership then the alliance should keep its door open for the country, Voice of America has cited Blinken as saying during the recent meeting of the Senate’s Foreign Affairs Committee.
Blinken said that Russia is aggressive to countries which are not members of NATO and lack the security umbrella.
There is sufficient evidence for this,” Blinken said.
Blinken was nominated for the post on November 23.
He served as the US Deputy National Security Advisor between 2013 and 2015 and Deputy Secretary of State between 2015 and 2017 under President Barack Obama.
