Ambassador Kelly Degnan Makes First Remarks upon Arrival in Tbilisi
Gamarjoba! I am delighted to be here, finally. It is an honor to serve as the United States Ambassador to Georgia. I look forward to continuing the strong partnership America and Georgia have had. Over almost thirty years, we have been working together to help Georgia build its democratic institutions, to diversify its economy, to improve the education and healthcare here, and of course, to strengthen Georgia’s ability to defend its borders and protect its citizens. Georgia has made tremendous progress over the years, and there is still more to do. I look forward to helping Georgia with my team here at the Embassy, and Washington behind us, to achieve its vision of a Georgia that is stable, prosperous and secure. Thank you very much. Didi madloba! Nakhvamdis!
