Georgia, Tbilisi, April 27/ Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia stands in a path of democratic development, the U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Tina Kaidanow said at a joint press conference with the Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergi Kapanadze in Tbilisi on Wednesday.
She said that in terms of reforms, the Georgian government has already done a great job, although one can do more. "We are ready to offer assistance to Georgia in this regard," Kaidanow said.
She stressed that the meeting in this format, which was held on Wednesday in the office, allows for an exchange of views.
"We have listened to the Georgian colleagues and shared with them themes that excite us. Meetings were also held with representatives of the civil society, with the so-called 'opposition Eight', which discussed various issues," Kaidanow said.
In turn, Kapanadze said that the Georgian side has briefed representatives of the U.S. administration about the reforms that the Georgian government is carrying out.
He said that four working groups on cooperation between peoples, economy, education and security have been created under the Charter of the Georgian-US Partnership.
"Today, a meeting of the working group on democracy was held during which we briefed the U.S. side about the reforms that the Georgia government carries out. We also listened to their recommendations and positions," Kapanadze said.
