The second day of the NATO foreign ministers’ meeting began with the NATO-Georgia Commission, where Foreign Minister Sven Mikser reaffirmed Estonia’s support for Georgia’s aspirations to membership of the alliance.

Mikser said that Estonia supports all activities that bring Georgia closer to NATO.

“Georgia is an extraordinary partner for NATO. With almost 900 men and women of the Georgian military, Georgia is the largest non-NATO contributor to the mission in Afghanistan,” Mikser said. “At the same time it is also important to continue with reforms, not only for the membership of NATO, but for the future of the country. We highly appreciate Georgia’s commitment to Euro-Atlantic security."

Mikser also noted that Estonia is committed to Georgia’s security and territorial integrity. “We do everything in our power to support Georgia on the international stage and find a peaceful solution to conflicts.”

The NATO-Georgia Commission was established in 2008 after the war between Russia and Georgia.
