Obama's Letter of Congratulation to PM Ivanishvili
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 29 Oct.'12 / 15:12

Georgia’s new government “inherits the task of moving forward to solidify and advance Georgia's democratic and economic reforms,” U.S. President Barack Obama’s letter of congratulation to Georgia’s new PM Bidzina Ivanishvili reads.

U.S. Ambassador to Georgia, Richard Norland, was in the government’s office in Tbilisi on October 29 to present PM Ivanishvili the letter, dated with October 25.

“The election was a historic milestone for your country and demonstrated to the world that Georgia has become a vibrant democracy,” the letter reads. “Your government now inherits the task of moving forward to solidify and advance Georgia's democratic and economic reforms. This will require the government, parliament, and presidency to move past the contentious election and transition period and work together constructively to pursue policies that are in the best interest of all Georgian citizens. I understand from Ambassador Norland that this is your preferred approach, and in this you have our continued support.”

“Since Georgia's independence more than 20 years ago, the United States has supported its democratic transition and Europe-Atlantic aspirations. At the outset of your tenure as Prime Minister, we recommit to our strong partnership and look forward to deepening our relationship in the years to come,” reads the U.S. President’s letter.

PM Ivanishvili said on October 29 that he was grateful for the U.S. long-standing support to Georgia and added that Georgia should its best to further deepen ties with its “greatest friend”.
