The US government is looking forward to working with Georgian President-elect Salome Zurabishvili, Robert Palladino, deputy spokesperson of the US Department of State said yesterday.

I would say the United States looks forward to working with President-elect Salome Zurabishvili and continuing our close partnership with Georgia on a range of important bilateral and regional issues, including our robust security cooperation and Georgia’s contributions to NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan,” Palladino told the media.

The Georgian Dream ruling party endorsed independent presidential candidate Salome Zurabishvili won the 28 November presidential election runoff in Georgia.

She has stated that her priority is the country’s Euro-Atlantic integration and the state unity.
