It is with deep sadness that my colleagues at the U.S. Embassy and I learned of the unexpected passing of David Chochua over the weekend. We have lost a great partner and a valued friend. Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to the Chochua family, David’s many friends, and his colleagues at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We share their grief and mourn the untimely passing of a brilliant young man and friend.
