We are very optimistic about the new US ambassador, Robin Dunnigan, and hope to establish excellent relations with her right from the outset, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili stated.
In his remarks to reporters, the PM stressed that the United States is Georgia’s number one strategic partner.
He also highlighted his recent meeting with US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, covering various aspects of the strategic partnership and cooperation between the two nations.
“I had a very engaging meeting with Mr. Sullivan, and I wish to extend my gratitude publicly. Our conversation was extensive, candid, and open. We delved into a wide range of issues, covering nearly all aspects of our strategic partnership and cooperation between our two countries,” he stated.
The PM said he anticipates strong relations with the new US Ambassador.
“We are very optimistic regarding the arrival of a new ambassador, who will soon be in Georgia. I am confident that right from the outset, we will establish an exceptionally open and sincere relationship with her,” he added.
Garibashvili emphasized the importance of open and honest communication in the bilateral relationship.
“It’s crucial to underscore the existing strategic partnership between our nations. The US is Georgia’s number one strategic partner. We deeply appreciate the United States for this invaluable partnership.
I’d like to note that differences of opinion can naturally arise at times. Georgia, as a sovereign nation, has its own interests, just as the United States has its objectives and interests. Differences in viewpoints on certain issues are a normal process in international relations. What truly matters is the healthiness of our dialogue and our commitment to transparent communication. The Georgian government has no hidden agendas concerning any matter. Therefore, I believe that a highly productive collaboration awaits us with a new ambassador,” he added.
