Tbilisi, Georgia, Dec. 17
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
The defense and security committee of the Georgian parliament is considering a bill "On State Secret", head of the committee Irakli Sesiashvili said at a briefing Dec. 16.
He said that the meetings were held with a non-governmental sector in connection with the bill.
"We are actively cooperating in terms of sharing classified information with NATO," he said. "This was the reason and purpose of working out the new bill. The law must ensure the flexibility of the process."
He stressed that the regime of classified information exchange is not envisaged by the legislation of Georgia.
"Today it is a reality," he said. "We exchange the classified information, which is associated with specific actions as part of the NATO mission, daily."
Sesiashvili said that a special session is planned to be held next week and this bill will be passed this year.
The author of the bill is Sesiashvili.
