According to the ministry, the conference will be attended by high-ranking officers and experts from more than 60 NATO and NATO partner countries. The conference’s goal is to "promote exchange of views on the transformations in the countries of the trans-Atlantic alliance and forge a common vision," the Georgian Defense Ministry said.
"It is very important for NATO to develop close relations with countries that are not member of the alliance," the ministry said. "The conference will pay special attention to the development of cooperation with partner countries."
