In December, 2008 Georgia will not accept the proposition to join NATO MAP if the Ukraine’s application is deferred, stated Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Eka Tkeshalashvili after the meeting with her Polish colleague Radoslav Sikorskiy in Warsaw.

“Approaching to NATO together with Ukraine gives us more possibilities,” said the Minister. At the same time Sikorskiy expressed regret that “a purely technical question, NATO MAP is a technical question, gains a political importance”.

“We have a very close strategic partnership with Ukraine. It is our joint effort, and we believe that the perspective is that we go by one road to NATO,” said the Minister, as Liga reports.

As ForUm reported, at the summit in Bucharest in April, NATO high officials stated that they will return to the question of possible joining of Ukraine and Georgia to NATO MAP in December 2008.
