After a NATO-Georgian commission meeting in Brussels, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Baramidze held bilateral meetings with the permanent representatives of Lithuania, Latvia and Bulgaria to NATO.

The officials discussed ongoing reforms in Georgia, the Russian-Georgian conflict, the prevailing situation in the occupied territories, the prospects for Georgia's integration into Euro-Atlantic structures and general plans for the future.

The officials unequivocally reaffirmed support for Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Lithuanian Ambassador Linas Linkevicius stressed the importance of reforms carried out in Georgia. He said Tbilisi has more opportunities and mechanisms at this stage of its integration with NATO than Vilnius did when acceding to the organization.
