    NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Wednesday noted Georgia’s progress toward integration with the alliance and called for a continuation of reforms.

    “Since our Bucharest summit, Georgia has come a lot closer to NATO,” Rasmussen said at a meeting of the NATO-Georgia Commission, adding that there is still “work to be done in a number of areas.”

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    NATO’s Bucharest summit in 2008 opened the door to eventual Georgian membership in the alliance, and Rasmussen reaffirmed that decision.

    Rasmussen and a NATO delegation he leads arrived in the capital Tbilisi on Wednesday for a two-day visit.

    Further reforms will be “Georgia’s ticket to membership in NATO,” the secretary general said.
