Q-n about the meeting
Ambassador Kelly Degnan: Thank you very much. It was an honor to meet with the Foreign Minister today. I am delighted to be here and to start working with the Minister, and the entire Georgian government, on our very robust agenda. We are looking forward to helping Georgia continue its efforts to integrate with the West, to try and combat some of the destabilizing activities of Russia in trying to upset the progress that Georgia has made through such hard work over the years, and of course to strengthen Georgia’s relationship with the United States. We have such a long and strong partnership, and I look forward to working with my team, and the Minister’s team, in making it an even stronger relationship. Thank you.
