Saakashvili's visit is not going to be limited to the commemorative event.

"Also, the president is planning to hold a number of meetings with the representatives of the U.S. political spectrum", - Mandzhgaladze told the journalists.

Let us remind you that the veteran of the American diplomacy Richard Holbrooke who held the post of the U.S. Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan over the last two years died in a hospital in Washington.

The 69-year-old Holbrooke felt bad on Friday at his office in the U.S. State Department in Washington and was taken to hospital the same day.

On Saturday, Holbrooke was operated on because of aortic rupture. On Sunday, he had another operative treatment aimed at improving blood circulation.

He held the post of the U.S. Assistant Secretary twice and actively lobbied Georgia's interests; notably, he used his influence to prove Russia's guilt in the war of 2008.
One of the streets in Tbilisi was named after him.
