TBILISI, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — Germany backs the strengthening of partnership between Georgia and NATO, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said.
Speaking at a joint news briefing with Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze on Thursday, Westerwelle said, “Certain results will be achieved at the NATO summit in Chicago in relation to strengthening partnership between Georgia and the Alliance.”
“Now I cannot comment on any details because NATO takes decisions collectively. I can only say Germany’s attitude towards this issue is clear: the Bucharest summit’s decision on Georgia’s membership remains in force,” the German minister said.
Westerwelle also said, “Germany supports Georgia’s territorial integrity, membership in European structures and the talks with the EU on visa-free travel for Georgian citizens and on free trade.”
The German foreign minister arrived in Tbilisi on Thursday within his South Caucasian tour. He met with President Mikhail Saakashvili and his Georgian counterpart. Before the departure Westerwelle will confer with students and professors of Tbilisi State University.
This is the first visit to Georgia by the German foreign minister. In the evening Westerwelle will fly to Yerevan.
