Chachibaia is scheduled to visit the General Jonas Žemaitis Military Academy of Lithuania, the NATO Energy Security Center of Excellence and the National Cyber Security Centre in Vilnius, the Lithuanian military said in a press release.

On Friday, he is to meet with Lithuania's Chief of Defense Lieutenant General Jonas Vytautas Žukas to discuss military cooperation and the security situation in the region before paying a visit to the Lithuanian Armed Forces' Defense Staff and the Special Operations Forces.

According to the press release, military cooperation between Lithuania and Georgia mainly focuses on officer training and consultations on strategic communications, cyber defense, logistics, financial management and strategic planning issues.

Georgia seeks to become a member of the European Union and of NATO, but its chances of joining these organizations in the coming years look slim.

Russia recognized the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states after a brief war with Georgia in 2008.

Thousands of Russian troops are stationed on a permanent basis in military bases in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which are considered by the international community as occupied territories of Georgia.
