The United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary James Cleverly will meet Georgian officials and civil society groups during his official visit to the country on Thursday and Friday, the Georgian foreign service said.
In the framework of the visit, the top British diplomat will review cooperation with Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and his counterpart Ilia Darchiashvili.
Cleverly will also visit the administrative line separating the Russian-occupied regions from the rest of the country to be introduced about the current situation in areas adjacent to the line.
In addition, he will attend an event organised by the Digital Governance Agency on the topic of cybersecurity.
Ahead of the visit, Cleverly said “few societies understand the underhand tactics of Russian malign activity more than Moldova and Georgia”.
Coinciding with the visit, the British foreign service also said the UK would be providing £500,000 in aid to help create an environment for “free and fair elections” in Georgia in 2024 and protect them from external interference.
