European security and North Korea will be the main talking points at a meeting of Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski and other NATO foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.
Stoltenberg said that NATO is grateful for Georgia's many contributions to Euro-Atlantic security, especially the service of the highly-skilled men and women of the Georgian military. Secretary General Stoltenberg stressed that successive rounds of enlargement have secured peace in Europe and supported European integration.
"We are very very for strengthening the cooperation with the Georgian coastguard. because the Black Sea is of great importance for Georgia but also of course for Nato", Stoltenberg said.

The move follows Nato's announcement in February that it was stepping up its air and maritime presence in the Black Sea, as part of deterrence measures following the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea in 2014.
"In other words, NATO's support to Georgia is concrete and is making a real difference", he said.
The foreign ministers will discuss the alliance's goal of projecting stability and fighting terrorism, he said, noting progress in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. "I expect we will agree to take NATO-EU cooperation to a new level", he added.More news: FY2017 EPS Estimates for Golar LNG Partners LP Reduced by Analyst (GMLP)
