relations between the countries, security issues in the region and the issue of deepening relations between NATO and Georgia before the Chicago summit. He says that in the current situation, when punishing plans still remain in Russian Schedule due to Georgia’s aspiration to NATO membership, Obama-Saakashvili meeting will be very important.
Katcharava says that the planned meeting is significant as it’s the 20th anniversary of U.S. –Georgian diplomatic relations. He says that Georgian-U.S. relations are developing so fast that it may be hard to find many cases of such rates of becoming close in the history of diplomacy.


“We must not forget that after 2008 Russian-Georgian war, Georgia survived as a state and it is first of all the result of special relations of Georgia with U.S. and not only political but financial support of the U.S. to Georgia”, Vasil Katcharava said.


He says that by initiative of the American studies Centre, on 17 May, special scientific conference will be devoted to the 20th anniversary of Georgian-U.S. diplomatic relations. Georgian scientist will actively participate in the conference.
U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with the President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili on 30 January in the Oval Office of the White House, official web page of the White House informs.
“The two presidents will discuss further strengthening the U.S. – Georgia Charter on Strategic Partnership by enhancing cooperation in the fields of trade, tourism, energy, science, education, culture, and security. President Obama will underscore the importance of our defense cooperation with Georgia, including Georgia’s substantial contributions to international security operations in Afghanistan. The President will reconfirm U.S. support for the integrity of Georgia’s territory within its internationally recognized borders. The President also looks forward to discussing upcoming elections in Georgia and the reforms that will ensure Georgia’s continuing transformation into a vibrant and stable democratic state”, the web page reports.


According to the White House, “This year marks the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and the Republic of Georgia”.
Expert in international issues Levan Tsutskiridze salutes the Obama-Saakashvili meeting and declares that attitude of U.S. and other countries to Georgia is determined by the situation in Georgia regarding democracy.
“U.S. and other traditional allies’ policy towards Georgia will largely depend on the situation in the country regarding democratic development”, Levan Tsutskiridze told InterPressNews.
He says that it’s important that U.S. Georgian long-term cooperation, strategy and security issues, democratic reforms and future are discussed in the context of elections which are of historical importance to us.
