The Ambassador of Italy to Georgia, Enrico Valvo has said that a project aimed at training a battalion of Georgian Military Police will be carried out by Italian Carabinieri.
As he told the Accent, NATO Allies have been providing continuous support concerning the Euro-Atlantic integration process undertaken by the country.
According to him, Georgia has developed one of the most intense and substantial partnerships with the North Atlantic Alliance.
“As “Enhanced Opportunity Partner” (EOP), Tbilisi holds frequent political dialogue with the Alliance within the framework of the NATO-Georgia Commission, as well as ambitious practical cooperation, through a number of different tools.
Italy is playing a major role within this framework, through significant commitments – political and financial, through the NATO-Georgia Substantial Package – which included the creation of a Defence Institution Building School (DIB) and contribution to the Joint Training and Evaluation Centre (JTEC).
Further initiatives are in the pipeline right now, including a project aimed at training a battalion of Georgian Military Police, whose implementation will be carried out by Italian Carabinieri, under the auspices and the financing of NATO’s Defence and Capacity Building Trust Fund,” Valvo told the Accent.
