A group of three U.S. Senators arrived in Georgia for a two day visit on Thursday.
The delegation is led by Republican John McCain, ranking member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, whom President Saakashvili awarded with Georgia’s highest state order of National Hero when he visited Georgia in January, 2010.
Other two members of the delegation are chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Joe Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate, and Republican Lindsey Graham.
“The Senators will meet with President Saakashvili and other members of the Georgian government, as well as opposition leaders,” the U.S. embassy in Tbilisi said in a press release.
The three U.S. Senators visited Iraq before heading to Georgia.
