During her speech, President Zourabichvili recalled the words of Dean Acheson, the former US State Secretary, about the Georgian people:

You have been often conquered, but never subdued. You have been able throughout the ages to preserve your own national personality, and you have never lost the will to stand up for your human rights. We Americans admire you for this enduring spirit.”
