‘Prior to the briefing for the local media, Levan Isoria and the Army General Stepan Poltorak signed a document on the bilateral cooperation and deepening relations,’ the statement said. 

 

According to the ministry, during the ministerial meeting, a one-on-one conversation touched upon the issue of participation of Georgia and Ukraine in the joint exercises planned for 2017. The Ministers noted the importance of strengthening the military-political cooperation. 

 

In February, the Government of Ukraine approved the draft decree on the approval of the national program under the auspices of the Ukraine-NATO Commission, for 2017. In March, Kiev asked for a permission to join NATO’s key allies. In the alliance, Ukraine’s intentions are not rejected, but no concrete and profitable for Ukraine steps have yet been taken.
