We are proud to have earned confidence and friendship of Georgian people, US Ambassador says

US Embassy in Georgia celebrates the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations, partnership, and friendship with Georgia this year. US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan delivered a speech on this occasion at the National Library.

According to Kelly Degnan, 30 years is a long time, but also a beginning. In her words, over the years, the United States and Georgia have developed into strategic partners “working together toward a shared vision of Georgia fully integrated in the Euro-Atlantic family of nations and part of a Europe whole, free and at peace.“  She said that this is a vision that takes “hard work, patience, and significant resources to realize.”

“As a result of our 30 years of cooperation, we are proud to have earned the confidence and friendship of the people of Georgia.  There is a deep reserve of trust and respect that has developed as we navigated the difficult transitions Georgia has gone through.  That trust and respect is precious to us.

There is strong interest and bipartisan support for our goals in both the legislative and executive branches of the United States stemming from our shared democratic values.  The United States has a huge interest and desire to see Georgia fulfill its trans-Atlantic destiny,” Kelly Degnan said.
