July 20, 2022

Military cooperation, training, and service – a long-held and strong partnership between the U.S. and Georgia as we work together for peace and the restoration of Georgia’s territorial integrity. We stand proudly shoulder to shoulder as Georgia continues on the path to NATO integration. The construction of a railhead in Poti is one key project with the Ministry of Defense of Georgia that will foster closer security cooperation. Ambassador Degnan met with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133 Georgia Detachment to learn about how this railhead will help Georgia’s ability to host major exercises and move equipment.
