Georgia: U.S. Strategic Partnership Charter

Dateline Tbilisi reports that the outgoing Bush administration in Washington has signed a strategic partnership charter with Georgia which supports its territorial integrity and aspirations towards NATO membership. Although non-binding, the blog notes that the charter reportedly marks a shift towards direct military assistance for the South Caucasus republic and that the Georgian foreign minister, Grigol Vashadze, believes such military cooperation will begin in the “very near future.” Vashadze is also quoted as saying that the document was signed with the agreement of officials from the incoming administration of president-elect Barack Obama. Georgia on my mind! posts the full text of the document.
