Thirty US Congressmen have addressed President Donald Trump with a letter to celebrate the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Georgia and the US and a strong strategic partnership between the two countries.
Georgia Caucus Co-Chairman Gerald Connolly (D-VA) and 28 other Members of Congress joined the letter.
“Today dozens of my colleagues joined me in sending a bipartisan letter to President Trump commemorating the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Georgia,” said Congressman Ted Poe. “For the past 25 years, Georgia has been one of our most steadfast partners in an increasingly turbulent region. As co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on Georgia, I have seen firsthand the strides that Georgia has made in developing democratic institutions and strengthening economic growth. Such accomplishments are made even more impressive considering that Georgia has had to maintain the safety and security of its citizens in the face of ongoing Russian aggression. Despite such challenges, Georgia remains a vital U.S. security partner. I proudly stand with Members of the House Georgia Caucus and friends of Georgia to reaffirm this valued partnership.”
In addition, the Congressmen call on the President to start negotiations on free trade agreement with Georgia and to deepen a high level dialogue on trade and investment issues for this purpose. The Congressmen also call on the US President to continue supporting Georgia’s accession to NATO. The letter emphasizes the strong strategic partnership between our countries and the need for the US to further deepen this partnership.
“I am glad to celebrate 25 years of diplomatic relations between the United States and Georgia, and urge the Administration to reaffirm this important partnership,” said Congressman Connolly. “Whether building its own democratic institutions, fostering economic growth through trade with the U.S., or contributing troops to regional security efforts, Georgia has been and continues to be a valued and strategic partner.”
