“Partnership is very important for NATO. Georgia and Ukraine are valuable partners of the Alliance. Cooperation with them is important for NATO for many reasons. Both states participate in Alliance missions and operations. At the same time, the Black Sea region, whose strategic importance has increased, is important for NATO. Therefore, working with partners such as Georgia and Ukraine, holding discussions with them and listening to them is an important part of NATO’s 2030 strategy, ” stated Jens Stoltenberg.
