    Georgia's NATO membership aspirations are unlikely to be fulfilled at the Warsaw NATO summit next week, a US senator and a deputy head of the US delegation to the OSCE PA told Sputnik Friday on the sidelines of the ongoing OSCE PA annual meeting in Tbilisi.

    TBILISI (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova — When asked about the main issues on the Polish summit agenda, Wicker stressed that the alliance would focus on the implementation of the Minsk deal on Ukrainian reconciliation.

    "With regards to Georgia, it seems that, perhaps, their fondest desire will not be realized at the Poland conference," Rodger Wicker, who is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said.

    In 2008, Georgia applied for membership in NATO. Since then a NATO commission has monitored Tbilisi's progress in matching the standards of the bloc.
