According to the Speaker, he is planned to hold meetings with representatives of the U.S. Department of State, the National Security Council and Congress.
Bakradze is also expected to hold meeting with Joe Biden, the U.S. Vice President.
The Speaker reminded that the Charter on strategic partnership, signed on January 9th 2009, implies cooperation of the two countries in security sphere. Tbilisi underlines that the U.S. side too responsibility to modernize Georgian army and increase the defense capacity of the country. "We agree with the new administration on fulfillment of the Charter - Bakradze said. - we have already heard the comments of the U.S. Minister of Defense and other officials on the cooperation in the sphere of ensuring the security of Georgia will be continued".
He underlined that the Charter was signed a few days before the change of the U.S. administration, and it was agreed with the coming authorities beforehand. "So, we do not expect any discords and count on the total fulfillment of the document," Bakradze said.
At the same time he assured that the military cooperation of Washington and Tbilisi is not directed "against other countries, never mind against Russia". "Speaking that it may anyhow worry the country of such scale as Russia, is just unserious, - the Speaker said. - Georgia can be a threat for Russia under no circumstances".
