President Giorgi Margvelashvili offered today political consultations to Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili and Parliament Speaker Irakli Kobakhidze on his recent proposal to the United States Congress for a bipartisan Georgia Support Act.
President Margvelashvili first voiced the initiative during his recent trip to the United States, telling U.S. legislators that the Georgia Support Act would consolidate the American-Georgian relations “into a very high level of cooperation.”
The President’s press office reported today that an official letter was submitted to the Parliament Speaker and the Prime Minister, notifying them of the proposal details and expressing “willingness for consultations.”
The press office said verbal communication had already taken place between President Giorgi Margvelashvili on the one hand, and Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili and Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze on the other.
Commenting the matter, David Rakviashvili, secretary of the National Security Council of Georgia, said the document would be “very timely,” and “an adequate response” to the increasing challenges emanating from the Russian Federation.
