By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgia's inclusion into the NATO Response Force (NRF) will be financed by the United States, Georgian Defence Minister Irakli Alasania said on Feb. 12 at a joint press conference with the chairman of the NATO Military Committee, General Knud Bartels.

It has already been decided that Georgia will become a part of NRF starting from 2015 and the sponsor state has also been selected which will be the United States, the minister said.

"This means our cooperation has moved to a new level," Alasania said.
