Saakashvili Speaks of Georgia’s NATO Integration

President Saakashvili said on October 18 his international efforts were now directed towards gaining support for Georgia’s NATO Membership Action Plan.

“I travel a lot abroad in order to gain serious international support to make Georgia a NATO candidate state,” Saakashvili said on October 18 in Lisbon, where he attended the Summit of the European People’s Party. “If things come right, after April the issue of Georgia’s accession to NATO will become practically irreversible and it will be a real revolution in our geopolitical situation.”

Currently, the Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) and Intensified Dialogue remain the main tools for Georgia-NATO cooperation. Tbilisi now hopes to receive Membership Action Plan (MAP) at the NATO summit in Bucharest in April 2008.
