In Batumi he held an informal meeting with Mikheil Saakashvili, the Georgian leader, and discussed issues of security and participation in peacemaking operations.
According to the Foreign Ministry of Georgia, in the course of the visit Holbrooke and Saakashvili will visit the Ministry of Defense training centre in Krtsanisi, where Georgian military are trained for further departure for Afghanistan.
Journalists will be allowed at neither of the meetings. Today the visit will be over.
Previously Nino Kalandadze, the deputy Foreign Minister of Georgia, mentioned the importance of that visit for the country, since it once again highlights the significance of Georgia's participation in ISAF operation in Afghanistan.
Currently a company of Georgian military is serving there, in the France's responsibility area. In spring 2010 a battalion will join and will serve with the U.S. contingent. The two units comprise about 700 servicemen.
