RIA News, citing Carpenter’s statement, reports that not so long ago Georgia took part in joint military maneuvers with US and British servicemen. The total number of troops from the three countries that took part in those exercises was more than a thousand or more. Of these, 500 people are Georgian soldiers and officers. We are talking about maneuvers "Nobel partner" ("Worthy partner"). Apparently, Washington and London are understood to be representatives of the Georgian army as “worthy partners”. Training maneuvers were conducted for two weeks in May.
Recall that Georgia is bursting into the North Atlantic Alliance with all its might. To do this, official Tbilisi is trying to fulfill all the financial requirements emanating from NATO, bringing the expenditure of its military budget to 2% of GDP and inviting NATO troops to its territory to conduct exercises of various kinds.
