The article cites Janelidze as saying that the US Secretary of State expressed Washington's firm support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

"We of course spoke about the Russian-Georgian conflict, about the situation in the occupied territories, and once again we received full support from the United States toward our territorial integrity, our sovereignty," Janelidze says, according to the article.

"[The US] is ready to stand by Georgia in all processes that will contribute to our stability, peaceful development, and will guarantee the strength of our state", he adds.
