Parliamentary elections of this year are an important opportunity for Georgians to show the world that the progress they have worked so hard for cannot be reversed. Such a statement newly-appointed Ambassador of the US to Georgia Kelly Degnan made at the oath-taking ceremony.
“We have an ambitious work plan with Georgia, and high expectations of our Georgian friends. Georgians shown that they have the determination and the fortitude to implement the reforms needed to protect the democratic process they have worked so hard to establish, and that is essential to Georgia’s trans-Atlantic integration.
There is no doubt that Georgia is an important and strategic partner for the US. During almost 30 years of working together, we have witnessed a remarkable transformation – the result of Georgians’ courage and love for their country’s independence.
Georgia has much to be proud of, and the United States is honored to stand with our Georgian friends.
We’ve got great momentum, And as Ambassador, I’m committed to keeping our partnership strong, and on a path to realize the bright future that all Georgians deserve”, - said the Ambassador.
