Statement on Recent Media Reports

The U.S.-Georgia defense relationship has been and continues to be based on enhancing interoperability and supporting Georgia’s ability to deter further aggression and defend its sovereign territory, all of which helps Georgia become more prepared for NATO membership.  To clarify the record in response to recent media reporting, the United States has not offered to establish a U.S. military base in Georgia.
