Ambassador Kelly Degnan’s Remarks per Meeting the Public Defender Nino Lomjaria
July 19, 2021

Q-n: the question about the meeting and the topics discussed.

Ambassador Kelly Degnan: This was a very good opportunity to talk with the Public Defender and her team about some important human rights issues that Georgia is facing today. The Public Defender’s Office plays such an important role in any democracy, but I think particularly here in Georgia while the country is working through some very important [and] difficult issues. So, the United States will continue to work with the Public Defender’s Office to improve our cooperation and to support the important role that the Public Defender plays in Georgia’s democracy. Thank you!
