The NATO Secretary General’s visit to Tbilisi begins today. NATO’s executive body, the North Atlantic Council, headed by the Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, will work in Georgia today and tomorrow. Mr Rasmussen will chair the meeting of the NATO-Georgia Commission, which will be attended by the Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili. During his visit, the Secretary General will hold bilateral talks with a number of leading figures in the Georgian government.
Prior to his visit, Mr Rasmussen has told the Georgian media that the country’s future membership of NATO will depend on Georgia alone. The Secretary General has also commented on several current events, including the possibility of Mr Ivanishvili’s departure from politics, and the arrest of the former Prime Minister Vano Merabishvili. Mr Rasmussen states that these are Georgian internal matters, in which his organization has no wish to interfere. In relation to Mr Merabishvili’s case, he states that “while [NATO] does not wish to interfere with the judicial process, we would like to emphasize the significance of respecting the rule of law, and we expect the government to take this into consideration.”
