Georgia, Tbilisi, Nov.24 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
"The United States strongly supports Georgia's hopes to join NATO," a member of the U.S. Congress David Dreier told journalists in Tbilisi.
"The United States strongly supports Georgia's accession to NATO and I hope that Russian President Medvedev's objection will not come true from this point of view," he stressed.
Mr Medvedev said two days ago that if there had been no Russian intervention in 2008, Georgia and several other countries today would be NATO members.
"The day will come, and I hope it will happen soon, when we will see Georgia in NATO, and if President Medvedev doesn't wish to see Georgia as a NATO member and that is his goal, I would like his wish fail," Mr Dreier said.
He also discussed US-Russian relations and stressed that 'the maximum effort should be made to avoid a possible new cold war or similar threat'.
