U.S. Secretary of Defense to Visit Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Aug.'14 / 10:18

After participating in the NATO summit in Wales on September 4-5, U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel will visit Georgia and Turkey, the Pentagon said on Friday.

“From Wales, the secretary will next travel to Georgia, one of the United States' and NATO's most important and capable partners,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said.

“The Georgian military has been a valued partner of the United States in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the secretary looks forward to thanking the Georgian people for their contributions and sacrifices over the last decade,” he said.

“Obviously, Georgia shares our concerns about Russia's actions in Ukraine, and that will, of course, be at the top of his agenda during that visit,” the Pentagon spokesperson said.

It will be Hagel’s first visit to Georgia as Defense Secretary. He met Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Alasania twice at the Pentagon since August, 2013.
