 Pence: US backs Georgia in NATO

US Vice President Mike Pence said the Donald Trump administration “strongly” supports Georgia’s ambition of joining NATO.

“We see Georgia as a key strategic partner and stand by your territorial integrity and your aspirations to become a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization,” Pence said at talks with Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili in Tbilisi. 

"President Trump and I support the Bucharest Summit declaration that Georgia will become a NATO member," Mike Pence noted.

Trump “asked me to extend greetings to you this morning and to say we are with you,” Bloomberg cited Pence as saying.
