Prime Minister Affirms NATO Goals, Says "No Turmoil" In Georgia

Amid a political crisis in Georgia, Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili told EU and NATO officials in Brussels that he is committed to the country's path toward integration with Europe. He also voiced concerns over a Russian proposal to sign a new treaty with Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia. Earlier this month, Garibashvili dismissed Defense Minister Irakly Alasania, who had condemned the arrests of several military officers as an "attack on Georgia's Euro-Atlantic choice." (Reuters)
