TBILISI, DFWatch–A session of the NATO Georgia commission was held May 22 in Brussels. Ambassadors discussed the planned visit to Georgia of the North Atlantic Council this summer.

Zurab Abashidze, the Prime Minister’s Special Representative for Russian Relations, and Davit Zalkaliani, First Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, represented Georgia at the session, during which parties also discussed relations with Russia and the on-going Geneva talks, which are regularly held after the Russia-Georgia war of August 2008.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen chaired the meeting.

According to Georgia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, ambassadors of NATO member countries remarked that the North Atlantic Council’s trip to Georgia this summer will be a good opportunity for the alliance to get introduced to ongoing processes in Georgia and support the country’s reforms and Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration.

The North Atlantic Council is NATO’s highest political decision-making body, meeting at least weekly.
