US Vice President to visit Georgia

US Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Tallinn, Estonia; Tbilisi, Georgia; and Podgorica, Montenegro July 30-August 2, 2017, the White House said.

In Georgia, the Vice President will meet with President Giorgi Margvelashvili and Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, among others, and visit U.S. and Georgian troops participating in the Noble Partner exercise.

Welcoming Pence to Georgia, the country’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said this is yet another proof of the US support to Georgia.

"This is a very important step from the US in terms of supporting Georgia”, Kvirikashvili posted on his official Facebook page.

Prime Minister said he had personally invited Pence to visit Georgia a couple of months ago when the Georgian delegation was paying a visit to the US.
