Wilson said, “The United States is supporting your [Georgia’s] aspirations and we will try to support Georgia and Georgia’s interests in Riga.  Georgia is a reliable and solid partner to the U.S.  I had a chance to personally see in Afghanistan the professionalism, readiness and skills of Georgian soldiers.”
