Let us remind you that the veteran of American diplomacy Richard Holbrooke who has been holding office as U.S. Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, died in a hospital in Washington.
69-year-old Holbrooke suddenly felt bad on Friday at his work place in the U.S. State Department in Washington and was taken to hospital the same day.
On Saturday, he was operated on because of aortic disruption. There was another operative treatment the next day to improve blood circulation.
He twice held the position of Assistant Secretary of State, actively lobbying Georgia's interests. Notably, he used his influence to prove Russia's guilt in the war of 2008.
According to Novosti-Georgia, Holbrooke's name will be given to the street in the next few days.
Also, Richard Holbrooke was awarded Order of St. George posthumously. According to the Georgian president's press service, American diplomat was awarded "for his contribution into the cause of peace in the world and democracy development, as well as for strengthening and developing Georgian-American relationship".
