Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 19 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
The Government shall in no case support false and unrealistic expectations for Georgia's accession to the EU today and NATO next year, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Maia Panjikidze said.
As Panjikidze said at a meeting with the parliamentary majority on Tuesday, she does not want any unrealistic expectations in terms of accession to the EU or NATO in Georgia.
"Yesterday, I was informed by Brussels of the North Atlantic Council's planned visit to Georgia. This will happen very soon. Additionally, this autumn, the Military Committee will also visit Georgia; all of this is an indication that NATO welcomes Georgia's success in the matter. I hope that this process will get a positive reflection at the summit in 2014. However I would like to state categorically that in no case false and unrealistic expectations concerning Gerogia's accession to the EU this year and to NATO during the coming year should be taken seriously," Panjikidze said.
According to the Minister, two major activities are planned this year in respects to NATO. The Defense and Justice Ministers of Georgia are on a visit to Brussels.
