President Saakashvili, who is visiting the United States, held series of meetings with U.S. Senators in Washington, Georgian President’s administration said on March 17.
He met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, as well as Republican Senators John McCain and Saxby Chambliss and Democratic Senator Benjamin Cardin.
Saakashvili also held meeting with Senator Joe Lieberman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Jeanne Shaheen, the chairperson of the Subcommittee on European Affairs of U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen sponsored in December a draft resolution supporting Georgia’s territorial integrity and recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia as regions “occupied by the Russian Federation”.
