Four NATO Ships Make Port Call in Georgia

Four NATO ships, assigned to the Standing NATO Maritime Group Two (SNMG2), arrived on a four-day port call in Poti on Georgia’s Black Sea coast today.

The maritime group, which includes the British frigate HMS Duncan, Turkish TCG Gemlik, Bulgarian BGS Drazki, and Romanian ROS Regele Ferdinand, is led by Mike Utley, commander of NATO’s SNMG2.

The vessels will stay in Poti port until May 18, and their crews will take part in joint exercises organized by the Georgian Interior Ministry and its Border Police, which aim at increasing interoperability between Georgia and NATO.

Temur Kekelidze, head of the Border Police, underscored today that the port call was a confirmation that Georgia remained steadfast on its path to NATO membership.
