In the article an author, Mr. Hitoshi Omae underlined that the U.S. has continued to support Georgia since 2000s in the fields of politics, economy and national security. Georgian Prime Minister Mr.Kvirikashvili had a meeting with President Trump in the beginning of May this year and Mr. Janelidze emphasized that the strong partnership between two countries was reaffirmed during the Prime Minister’s visit. “I have no doubt on the new U.S. administration’s stance on policies concerning Georgia and the problems we have with Russia”. While the Trump administration tries to build a better relationship with Russia, as a country confronts with Russia, the minister denied the worries on this issue. 

Georgia and Russia promptly broke off diplomatic relations with each other after the conflict in 2008.
