Georgian president believes strong relations with US under Trump
Georgia expects relations with the United States under Donald Trump to remain strong despite his calls for improved ties with Russia and Tbilisi will keep pressing for closer collaboration with NATO, the president of the ex-Soviet republic said, Reuters reports.
Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili told Reuters in an interview late on Tuesday that he was sanguine about the prospect of Trump taking power.
"Our relations and communication with President Donald Trump as well as with our friends and allies on the Hill (in Congress) from the Republican and Democratic sides will be maintained because we are talking about interests and ... goals that are and have been shared for the last 25 years," he said.
"We've never had concerns about our allies, we do have interests for intensifying our agenda, and we do not think that this agenda will be undermined," he said, speaking English.
