TBILISI, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. A delegation of the NATO Military Committee led by Knud Bartels and Georgia’s top officials will discuss the use of Georgia’s transit corridor by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan at a meeting in Tbilisi on February 12.
The Committee members arrived in Tbilisi for a two-day official visit earlier on Tuesday.
Vakhtang Kapanadze, the Georgian Armed Forces chief of staff, met the delegation at the airport.
Members of the NATO Military Committee are expected to meet Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili, Prime Minister Irakliy Garibashvili and the Georgian defense minister to discuss the use of Georgian territory for transporting ISAF cargoes out of Afghanistan.
“We consider it to be a promising subject that would interest Georgia, NATO and the partner states. We are offering a safe, effective and economical corridor,” Kapanadze emphasized.
Other topics for discussion, according to Kapanadze, include regional security; the tasks and goals facing Georgia on its way to NATO as well as how well the country is fulfilling these tasks.
