Q-n about the meeting

Ambassador Kelly Degnan: It was a very good, constructive conversation I just had with the Speaker. We discussed a number of areas where we already have very strong cooperation: the security field, education, democratization of Georgia’s political system, economic ties. We are looking at other ways we can further strengthen the strong ties between our two countries. There has been so much good cooperation so far, and Georgia’s progress today has been really impressive. There is more work to do, and this meeting today was a good opportunity to discuss the areas were we see fruitful collaboration in the future.
