Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili on Tuesday said the ongoing NATO Summit in Vilnius had “once again” emphasised that Georgia was enjoying a “strong support” from its partners in the bloc.

In his comments over the Summit Communiqué, which reiterated the decision made at the 2008 Bucharest Summit that “Georgia will become a member of the Alliance”, Darchiashvili noted the allies had “once again demonstrated strong support for Georgia” on its integration path.

Today, at the Vilnius summit, it was emphasised once again that Georgia enjoys a strong support from NATO partners - very strong support is expressed for our territorial integrity and sovereignty. Georgia's efforts to make its significant contribution to strengthening global security are highly appreciated”, Darchiashvili said.
