According to the draft Resolution, the United States Administration supports Georgia's aspirations to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO); recognizes the significant benefits of closer economic and political ties between NATO members and Georgia which will spur economic growth, strengthen democratic institutions and norms, and bolster the rule of law in the South Caucasus region as well as other countries in Eastern Europe; calls on the Government of Russia to respect the rights of countries to make their own sovereign choices with regard to international partnerships, including to join NATO; urges the Administration and the United States Department of State to continue to work closely with Georgia to support its entry into NATO; acknowledges and supports the progress made by Georgia in the NATO membership process; and urges NATO members to extend a Membership Action Plan (MAP) to Georgia at the NATO Summit in the United Kingdom in September 2014.

The Resolution reads that the Government of Georgia has met the basic standards for accession, "specific reforms continue, and (Georgia) has consistently displayed its willingness and ability to meet the responsibilities of membership in NATO".

The Resolution emphasizes Georgia's role in enhancing global peace and stability and its readiness, despite the heavy casualties, to continue its significant contribution to international peacekeeping operations.

The document focuses on the initialing of the European Union -Georgia Association Agreement, which is "expected to be signed before fall 2014, opening new opportunities of political association and deeper economic integration with the EU".

The Resolution speaks about Russia's illegal activities across the occupation underlining that "Russia continues to erect physical barriers along the Administrative Boundary Lines of the occupied Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, where Russian troops continue to be stationed despite a commitment in the 2008 ceasefire agreement to withdraw to pre-conflict positions and that Russia has not reciprocated to Georgia's unilateral pledges for non-use of force;

The Resolution emphasizes that "the United States supports Georgia's independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity within the internationally recognized borders of Georgia".
