U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is set to meet with Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze in Washington on June 11 to discuss “a range of bilateral issues.”
In making the announcement on June 10, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said the United States “does not recognize” the legitimacy of the elections for the legislative body in the breakaway Georgian region of South Ossetia, and it “will not acknowledge their outcome.”
