( NATO ) - James Appathurai, NATO Spokesman: "We welcome the initial evaluation of the conduct of presidential elections in Georgia, which indicated that this was a viable expression of the free choice of the Georgian people. This was an important step in Georgia's democratic development, though all irregularities identified by international observers should be addressed before parliamentary elections in spring. NATO will continue to deepen its Intensified Dialogue with Georgia, and support further efforts to meet Euro-Atlantic standards"
