TBILISI, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said being Georgia’s premier he had not time to visit the United States.
This fact does not spoil relations between the two countries, Ivanishvili said on Wednesday.
“Our countries maintain close and friendly relations. The new Georgian government strengthened cooperation with the United States, our key strategic partner,” he said.
“Earlier, he received invitations to visit Washington,” Ivanishvili said, adding, “U.S. Ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland, who is doing much to support Georgia, has told me several times. Recently I’ve had a talk about the possibility to travel to Washington this November, just after the presidential elections scheduled for October 27.”
“I intend to withdraw from political activities in November that’s why my visit to the U.S. can’t be held,” the Prime Minister said.
Ivanishvili said if it necessary in the future, he could travel to the U.S. on a private basis.
