NATO general secretary’s Special Representative in the countries of South Caucasus and Central Asia James Appathurai welcomed “Georgia’s intention to establish good neighbourly relations with Russia,” the press service of Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili, who had a meeting with Appathurai in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, on Thursday, said in a statement made public on Friday.
“James Appathurai assessed positively the fact that along with integration in NATO Georgia seeks to establish good neighbourly relations with Russia,” the statement runs.
The statement also noted that Appathurai and Margvelashvili “have discussed issues related with a forthcoming NATO summit, assessed Georgia’s progress on the path to Euro-Atlantic integration and reforms carried out to this effect.”
The negotiators “also discussed current regional situation and events in Ukraine,” the statement reads. “Appathurai wanted the Georgian president to visit Brussels in the future and meet NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen,” the Georgian presidential press service noted.
