Breedlove: US wants to strengthen Georgia's self-defense capabilities
The US military assistance to Georgia is focused on strengthening the country’s self-defense capabilities, NATO's Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, US Air Force General Philip Breedlove, said.
"The US military assistance to Georgia is focused on strengthening the country’s self-defense capabilities, as well as deepening further Georgia’s interoperability with the US and NATO. Our goal is for Georgia to be as prepared as possible, so that once NATO is ready to go, Georgia will be ready to go as well. I repeat that the United States supports Georgia’s aspiration to join the Alliance," RIA Novosti cited him as saying.
"In May the exercises Noble Partner 2016 will bring Georgian, US and UK soldiers together. And military drills will be bigger and better than last year’s Noble Partner exercise," Breedlove added.
