Vice President Pence in Europe: Georgia

1 minute read


Vice President Mike Pence’s next stop on his visit to Eastern Europe was Georgia.  Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili and the Vice President met to discuss how the United States, under President Donald Trump, strongly condemns Russia’s occupation of Georgia’s soil. Following his meetings, the Vice President and Second Lady Karen Pence toured the Sioni Cathedral of the Dormition, a symbol of the ancient faith that fills Georgia’s ancient land, with Patriarch Ilias II and Father Giorgi Zviadadze. Vice President Pence also addressed American and Georgian troops at Exercise Noble Partner where he discussed our shared commitment to promote security and stability across the wider world.  Following his speech, the Vice President departed for Montenegro, the last stop of his visit to Eastern Europe.
