TBILISI, DFWatch–Prime Minister Irakli Gharibashvili tomorrow begins his first United States visit since assuming office.

Gharibashvili, who is accompanied by several of his cabinet ministers, said at a government session on Thursday that it will be the first top level visit to the US for the new government.

“This once again confirms that relations between Georgia and the US will deepen,” he said.

The visit will start February 22 and continue until March 1.

When ex-Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili came to power he said his first trip abroad would be to the US, but the trip never came to fruition.
