US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan attended the Tbilisi Forum for Regional Security in Black Sea.
She said the forum this year focuses on nuclear and radiological threats in the Black Sea region that are “timely” amid “threats heard from Russia.”
“We are very pleased to be able to co-sponsor this very important Tbilisi Forum for Regional Security in Black Sea, which is focusing this year on nuclear and radiological threats in the Black Sea region, which, given what we’re hearing from Russia in terms of threats, is particularly important and very timely. This brings together government agencies, and other stakeholders to discuss these very important issues and be prepared to respond in the event of a CBRN event.
This is an event that we co-sponsor with the Swedish Radiation Agency and the NGO for Civil Defense. So, this is a very important opportunity, the fourth annual conference, bringing together people from all over the world to focus on this very important issue in the Black Sea region,” she said.
