U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, Eric Rubin, will visit Georgia on November 27-29, according to the U.S. embassy in Tbilisi.
He will hold talks with senior officials and will also meet with representatives from non-governmental organizations.
Rubin will also participate in the defense and security working group meeting between the Georgian and U.S. officials, which will be held in frames of strategic partnership commission.
The working group on defense and security is one of those four inter-agency bilateral groups, which were established to address priority areas of the U.S.-Georgia Strategic Partnership Charter, which was signed in January, 2009. Other priority areas of cooperation identified by the charter are democracy, economic and people-to-people relations.
“The United States continues its commitment to the U.S.-Georgia relationship, as demonstrated through our democratic and economic reform assistance, and steadfast support for Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” the U.S. embassy in Tbilisi said on November 26.
