Ex-Georgian Defense Minister and the current leader of the opposition party "Our Georgia - Free Democrats" Irakli Alasania arrived today in the US, where he plans to meet with representatives of the State Department.
The talks will focus on the political situation in Georgia. The dismissal of Alasania led to the resignation of two more ministers and a split in the ruling coalition, Georgian Dream. The reason for the dismissal and resignation was an embezzlement case against former employees of Alasania.
A former adviser to the Prime Minister of Georgia, Giorgi Khukhashvili, described the current actions of the ex-minister as a political mistake.
According to Khukhashvili, Alasania's visit to the U.S. ties his political career to the corruption investigation, which is confusing and shows Alasania's lack of perspective.
"In fact, he is going there to prove that his staff who are currently under arrest are "angels" and that the whole case is directed personally against him," Khukhashvili said.
The head of the Center for Security Studies and International Relations, Niki Chitadze, believes that the objective of Alasania's visit to the U.S. is to establish himself as the leader of the Georgian opposition in the West. 
"Perhaps Alasania will try to persuade the US side to lobby for a pro-Western foreign policy of the Georgian government," Chitadze said.
A member of the Expert Club of Georgia, Vakhtang Maisaia, believes that the main purpose of Alasania's trip is to report on the work of the defense department under his leadership and to discuss the current political situation in Georgia with American allies.
