I don’t think Georgia and Ukraine should expect to receive MAP at upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw, - former U.S. Ambassador to NATO and McCain University Director Kurt Walker has told Voice of America.

“If I were in Georgia’s shoes I would try to prepare for the summit as good as possible, as Georgia needs to be ready in case of NATO or EU expansion,” Walker said.

Walker has also responded to former Tbilisi Mayor Gigi Ugulava’s case. According to him, all developments related with Ugulava cannot make Georgia’s friends sure that all this has something to do with rule of law.

“As for Gigi Ugulava, he spent 14 months in pre-trial detention. Then he was released according to the decree issued by the Constitutional Court but still found guilty within 24 hours. All this cannot make Georgia’s friends sure that this is rule of law, these are hints to political motivation,” Walker said.
