WASHINGTON, November 29 (Itar-Tass) — Establishment of contacts between Georgia’s government of Bidzina Ivanishvili with the administration of the US President Barack Obama is a key topic of negotiations in Washington of Georgia’s Foreign Minister Maya Pandzhikidze. She will have a meeting on Thursday with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, where the two countries will discuss further development of bilateral relations, Georgia’s embassy in Washington said.
Pandzhikidze is expected to have meetings at the White House and at the Congress. She will also make a speech in Washington’s headquarters of the German Marshall Fund.
On Wednesday, Ivanishvili said Georgia’s new government would follow the policy aimed at deeper cooperation with the United States. Initially, Ivanishvili planned to go to the United States himself on an official visit, but later he postponed it. The prime minister said his trip to the US was due in 2013. “We have much work to do, we should form up the team, and focus closely on the economic issues, thus I have asked the American side to postpone my visit, and they understood my request,” the prime minister said.
