The NATO Military Committee rated positively the progress of the Substantial NATO-Georgia Package (SNGP) as they visited the NATO-Georgia Joint Training and Evaluation Centre, in Georgia on 2-3 March.

At the press conference in Tbilisi, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee - General Petr Pavel emphasised Georgia’s role as a close partner and international security provider - Georgia is a NATO candidate country. The SNGP was agreed at the Wales Summit in 2014 and provides substantial support, advice and assistance in developing country’s defence capability. Also, it advances its defence reforms and preparations for NATO’s membership. According to NATO Secretary General - Jens Stoltenberg Russia’s deepening relations with Abkhazia and South Ossetia separatist regions remain concerning. After the meeting of the NATO-Georgia Commission on 16 February, Stoltenberg called on Russia to reverse its recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and to withdraw its forces from Georgia.
