"Within three years the Georgian army will be the most combat-ready force in the region"
Within three years the Georgian army will be the most combat-ready force in the region, according to Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili. He made the remarks Thursday at the opening of the 2004 Georgian parliament. 'The military might of the army and its maintenance have significantly increased in just a few months. In the near future, six military helicopters and three ships will be obtained from abroad, and new fighter aircraft will enter service,' Saakashvili said. 'The might of the Georgian army will strengthen will the help of an individualized program for Georgian entry into NATO, and within three years the Georgian army will be the most combat-ready in the region,' he said. Saakashvili especially noted the role of the United States in bringing the Georgian army up to western standards. Some 275,000 military personnel have been trained with US material and technical aid, as well as expertise.
