The United States and Georgia have a very strong, robust security relationship. The Minister and I today were discussing various ways that we are cooperating to strengthen Georgia’s ability to defend its borders and deter Russian aggression. It is a very important moment at a critical moment for all of our countries as Russia is creating a crisis very near to Georgia’s borders. The most important thing is to send a strong signal of unity with Georgia, the United States, and all of our partners and allies. I was delighted to meet with the Minister today to discuss these important issues.
