On Wednesday morning, new U.S. Ambassador in Georgia Richard Norland arrived in Tbilisi, the Echo of the Caucasus reported. He arrived in Georgia with his wife, Mary Hartnett.


At the airport, he was met by the Acting Ambassador Brigitte Brink and other embassy officials.

According to Norland, he is honored to contribute to the development of democracy and peace in Georgia. He said that he was in Georgia for the last time in 1993, and a lot has changed since then.

"Georgia has achieved much in the way of building a democracy, but will have to overcome many challenges along the way and I'm glad that I can contribute to this process," he said.

He called "important" steps already taken in Georgia in the process of building democracy, but noted that the country continues to face challenges in this area, the VZGLIAD reported.

Norland said earlier that the Department of State was very concerned about certain aspects of the parliamentary election in Georgia on October 1 and the facts of harassment of opposition.
