Georgian PM receives U.S. Ambassador right after her arrival
New U.S. Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan met with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia right after presenting her credentials to Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili.
"It was a very substantive conversation. I really enjoyed it. We covered number of topics, including security cooperation, our economic cooperation and opportunities to increase our economic ties," Degnan said.
She further noted that during the meeting with PM Gakharia they "had a good discussion about the importance of education", including the program initiative for $7 million for a five-year education project in Georgia that USAID recently unveiled.
During the meeting, Degnan and Gakharia also spoke of "the continuing democratisation of Georgia," Agenda.ge reported.
Degnan said that she's looking forward to working with the Georgian government and the Georgian civil society.
