Georgia to participate in NATO Rammstein format for first time

The head of the Georgian mission to NATO said the country had been invited to take part in today’s meeting of the alliance’s Rammstein format for the first time.

“Minister of Defence Juansher Burchuladze will participate in the Rammstein format. Today, for the first time, Georgia will take part in this format – in particular, in a meeting of the contact group, where the main topics of discussion are strengthening defence capabilities for Ukraine, providing weapons during the war and more.

The fact that we have been invited and the Georgian Defence Minister will take part in this meeting is very important from a practical and political point of view,” said Viktor Dolidze.

The Rammstein format brings together defence ministers from Western-aligned nations and aims to develop new strategies and initiatives to assist Ukraine in combating the ongoing Russian offensives.
