"The secretary general said that Georgia is an exemplary partner for NATO and even more than just a partner, because Georgia is one of the most realistic candidates for joining the alliance," Gordadze said.

Rasmussen suggested that the new Georgian electoral laws are a step toward more democracy, and the participants in the NATO summit in Chicago will be informed of this, he said.

Georgian Deputy Prime Minister Giorgi Baramidze noted that Rasmussen's remarks concerning Georgia will help the country integrate with the alliance.

"Judgments were made to the effect that Georgia is an important and special partner for NATO, that reforms are being carried out very successfully in Georgia, and that it is a model for the region and has achieved success in different areas. It is also among the major participants in the operation in Afghanistan, which NATO values very much and to which it attaches great significance in terms of integration with the alliance," Baramidze told Georgian journalists in Brussels.
