    Default Georgian lobby in NATO

    Quite recently James Appathurai, NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia, said that no one can prevent Georgia from becoming a member of NATO. But according to John Bass, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the US in Georgia, Appathurai’s statements were made before time. That’s true because the NATO Summit-Chicago 2012 will be only in spring 2012 and it’s not Apparthurai’s duty to specify the questions to be discussed there. This suggests that Apparthurai is a carpet-bagger and tries to get some political capital by such rash statement instead of doing his job. Who knows maybe Saakashvili took some money from Georgia’s budget to pay Appathurai for lobbying his interests in NATO. If so, Mr. Appathurai must be dismissed for his actions and NATO members think if they really want to see Georgia which gives brides to NATO officials in their ranks.

    Welcome, arian. Can I take it that you do not want Georgia to join NATO ?
