We’re very honored to have Secretary of Defense Austin visiting us today.  His visit is a sign of the continued close cooperation between the United States and Georgia.  Our security cooperation continues—it’s one of the topics we will discuss during the meetings later today—what more the United States and Georgia can do together to increase Georgia’s security and stability  So, we are thrilled to have Secretary Austin here, and we look forward to a very full and productive day.
