Chargé d’Affaires Elizabeth Rood’s comments to media at International Black Sea University (April 2)


Q-n about today’s event

CDA Rood:  I am here today to visit the International Black Sea University.  Since 1995, the International Black Sea University has provided high quality education to Georgian students.  It is one of the largest and strongest private universities in Georgia, and we are very proud of the partnership that we have.

Q-n about the Georgian Government’s decision to expel a Russian diplomat 

CDA Rood:  We have welcomed the decision of the Georgian Government to join the many countries who have taken a stand that there’s a price to Russia’s actions, that have taken a stand against Russia’s attack on British soil, using weapons—achemical nerve against—against a [British] citizen and his daughter, and we feel that this was the right thing to do.
