Irakli Kobakhidze: A lot of things went wrong under the previous ambassador, so Georgian-US relations really need to be revised

Georgian-US relations really need to be revised, especially in the light of the 4-year processes that have developed in our country; You all remember the two attempts at the revolution, to which the third attempt was added during the previous weeks, - the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Kobakhidze, said while talking to journalists.

According to the head of the government, it is in the interests of the Georgian and American people to improve relations between Georgia and the United States of America.

"Georgian-US relations really need to be reviewed. I had a frank conversation about this with Mrs. ambassador and I would like to express my respect to her personally. Also, I had a conversation with Mr. O'Brien about the same thing. Georgian-US relations really need to be reviewed, especially in the light of the 4-year processes that have developed in our country. You all remember the two attempted revolutions, a third attempt was added in the previous weeks. All this, of course, indicates that Georgian-US relations need to be revised. Of course, it is in the interests of the Georgian people and the American people to improve the relations between Georgia and the United States of America," the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister also answered a question why Georgian-US relations entered into a crisis.

"I don't know why there were two revolution attempts in 2020-2021, then in 2022. I don't know why there were such attempts. The fact is that the previous ambassador messed up too much, too much has been messed up over the years, it needs to be fixed. They stood, including US-funded NGOs, on the revolutionary stage, when they demanded the resignation of the government and the formation of a government with their participation. I will repeat once again that a lot of things went wrong under the previous ambassador, so Georgian-US relations really need to be revised. We will do everything to improve Georgian-US relations as much as possible. This is in the interests of the Georgian people and, I believe, in the interests of the American people as well," said the Prime Minister.
