Georgia, Tbilisi, Dec. 6 /Trend N.Kirtzkhalia/
Georgia lost a real chance to get a Membership Action Plan (MAP) at the NATO ministerial meeting in Brussels, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said in Warsaw, commenting on the outcome of the ministerial, held on December 4-5.
"I personally received a promise that we will obtain a MAP after the democratic parliamentary elections on October 1," he stressed.
Saakashvili said the decision was changed because of the recent events in Georgia.
"These arrests and other events prevented us from achieving the expected, but nothing yet is lost," he said.
Georgian President stressed that he isn't satisfied with the current situation.
"We must work together to solve problems and not create them. Only together we can make progress. We are ready to cooperate with the country's new government on development and democratic reforms," Saakashvili said.
