TBILISI, November 27 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia’s government will pursue a policy targeted at deepening cooperation with the United States, Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said after a meeting with US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Eric Rubin, on Tuesday.
At the meeting “we analyzed bilateral relations between Georgia and the United States,” he said. “I thanked the United States, which has been providing support and assistance to Georgia for 20 years and expressed the hope that these relations will deepen even more.”
Ivanishvili assured Rubin that “Georgia will be even a more reliable partner for the United States.”
Rubin, in turn, described the meeting with Ivanishvili as positive.
He said the meeting focused on deeper relations between the two countries and the implementation of the U.S.-Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership and promised further support for Georgia’s integration into Euro-Atlantic structures.
The U.S.-Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership was signed in Washington on January 9, 2009. It envisages the two countries’ cooperation in security, defence, economy, trade, science, culture, energy and other spheres.
