WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today Congressman Poe (TX-02), co-chair of the Georgian Caucus, met with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili and members of the Georgian Parliament to discuss relations between the two countries.

"As the new co-chairman of the Georgian Caucus, it was an honor and privilege to welcome President Margvelashvili and members of the Georgian Parliament to the U.S. Congress. Georgia is a strong and important ally of the United States, and our two nations could have an even stronger partnership if Georgia was admitted into NATO and the European Union. Three years ago, our nations committed to working towards a free trade agreement. That commitment should be honored. Georgia has proven itself to be a capable and committed partner in the war on terror, particularly so as a non-NATO member in Afghanistan. Our two countries must stand together to challenge Putin’s aggression and attempt to create imaginary Russian states.”
