The U.S. is working to form a unified approach of NATO's members toward Georgia at the NATO Chicago summit, the US Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Eric Rubin said at a briefing in Tbilisi on Friday.
He emphasized that Washington supports Georgia's intention to integrate with the North Atlantic bodies and NATO.
Rubin said that while visiting Tbilisi in November, NATO ambassadors familiarized with Georgia's progress achieved in various sectors.
"We believe that this progress will be appreciated at the NATO Chicago Summit," he said." "The steps to be done in the future will be also discussed. These steps must be the result of consensus. The U.S. is working to form a unified approach toward Georgia."
"Georgia is the largest contributor in Afghanistan per capita," he said. It significantly contributes to the fight against terrorism. He expressed condolences to relatives of 10 Georgian soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
