Georgia: Bilateral Charter (Taken Question)

Question:Do we have any information on a more formal security agreement between the U.S. and Georgia?

Answer: As President Saakashvili noted to the press on December 22, the United States and Georgia are discussing the text of a new bilateral charter that will outline our enhanced cooperation to help Georgia advance security, democratic, and market economic reforms to strengthen Georgia, bolster our partnership, and deepen Georgia's Euro-Atlantic integration. This charter is similar to the one signed by the United States and Ukraine on December 19 in Washington.
