It is for Georgia to decide what alliances it wants to be part of to protect its own territory - Kelly Degnan

It is for Georgia to decide what alliances it wants to be part of to protect its own territory. Such a statement made today the U.S. Ambassador to Georgia.

“NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg and Secretary Blinken, both were very clear in their comments at the NATO Foreign Ministerial this week. This is a message that has been the same every year for the last 13 years, that Georgia and Ukraine will become members of the NATO Alliance.

This is strange to hear Russia objecting to this now, especially since Russia itself signed on to the Istanbul Convention in the mid-nineties, which made it very clear that all agreed that each sovereign nation has the right to decide and determine its own military alliances. Georgia has that right as well to decide for itself what military organizations or any other organization, this sovereign country wants to be a member of”, - said Kelly Degnan.
