McCain vows to continue working for imposing harsh sanctions against Russia upon arrival in Georgia
U.S. senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Amy Klobuchar arrived in Tbilisi on a two-day visit on Sunday, January 1.
McCain told reporters at the Tbilisi international airport that the senators would do everything possible for the United States to completely back the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia. He said that they would continue working for imposing harsh sanctions against Russia.
The senators will meet with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, President Giorgi Margvelashvili and Defense Minister Levan Izoria during the visit. The American senators have travelled immediately from the airport to the Khurvaleti village in the Tskhinval region, where Russian and South Ossetian military have placed barbed wire barriers.
