Armenia has had a big contribution to NATO partnerships, the former national security advisor to the Obama administration, former United States European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General James L. Jones said during the Summit of Minds held in Dilijan, Armenia, encouraging to develop relations between NATO and Armenia and Georgia.
The journalist inquired about how Jones sees the membership of Armenia to Partnership for Peace Program, noting that Armenia is not a member, inquired how the participation is going, and how NATO can contribute to the security of non-member states.
General James L. Jones said Armenia deserves congratulations for its big contribution to NATO partnerships, and he things it is a highly appreciated contribution. The more people are interested in the partnership program, the better because it allows people to join their possibilities and efforts.
Jones said though he is no longer entitled to speak on behalf of NATO, he can say that NATO has been engaged in this region and worked with Georgia too. He noted that Georgia visited well-trained subdivisions to war zones, and the participation and contribution of both Armenia and Georgia were highly commended. He thinks these relations can be developed and encourages to continue to develop these relations, he concluded.
