The action plan between the two countries was signed last year
Paris will send an army officer to Georgia, who will help to implement air defense system in the country, according to Jean-Yves Le Drian, France's Defense Minister.
The Minister says that the agreement on establishing air defense system, which was signed last year between France and Georgia, will strengthen the sovereignty of the Georgian air space.
"France will actively help Georgia strengthen its airspace sovereignty. There is an action plan between Georgia and NATO, which is designed to implement air defense. In that context, the role of France is to create the air defense system", Jean-Yves Le Drian stated during his visit to Georgia.
The high-ranking official also adds that the French officer, who will arrive in Georgia soon, will assist and monitor the air defense program implementation.
Jean-Yves Le Drian recalled that under the decisions, which were made during the NATO summit in Warsaw, the French military ship is to enter the Georgian port of Batumi in order to enhance the Black Sea security.
