  • Updated SNGP Approved within Meeting of NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs

    Refreshed Substantial NATO-Georgia Package (SNGP) was approved by NATO Allies and Georgia at the meeting of NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs. The updated package will provide more support to improve Georgia’s defense and security capabilities, strengthen resistance, enhance interoperability to NATO and Georgia’s integration process to the Alliance.    

    Decision on renew/refresh of SNGP was made within NAC official visit to Georgia back in 2019. On NAC behalf, NATO Partnership and Cooperative Security Committee (PSCS) was responsible to lead the SNGP refreshment process in 2020 in cooperation with the Georgian side. The Interagency Council for Substantial NATO-Georgia Package, established under the decree of Prime Minister of Georgia, led the process under the leadership of MoD. 

    “Just the fact that we had this meeting at ministerial level sends a very clear message of support. It demonstrates the strong political support from all NATO Allies to Georgia, its sovereignty, territorial integrity, and the fact that we provide both political support but also practical support. And we do that also by strengthening the package, which is the foundation for our cooperation, the partnership with Georgia. It was expressed clearly by Allies that they are looking into how they can further provide practical support in different ways to Georgia. One of the purposes of NATO 2030 is, of course, also to look into how we can further strengthen our partnerships, work with countries like Georgia”, stated NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the press conference.

    On the basis of 5 year-long experience received during the successful implementation of SNGP, the refreshed process aimed to review existing initiatives, to intensify and successfully implement them, as well as to add new practical components within it.
