Tbilisi: The US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, has dismissed the reports by the head of the Georgian Strategy Agmashenebeli opposition party, Giorgi Vashadze, regarding Georgian Dream officials rejecting the offer from the US to provide a military package worth billions of dollars for strengthening the country’s self-defence capabilities after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

However, the US Ambassador to Georgia has dismissed all such reports, stating, “Recent statements are full of inaccurate information; they are actually inaccurate and false.”

Adding further, she said that the United States of America had called on all allies and partners to help Ukraine in whatever way they could, “as Ukraine fights for its own territory and sovereignty”. 

“It has been very clear since the beginning that it is up to each country to decide on how to help Ukraine. We never wanted this war to expand or to put some kind of pressure on Georgia and other countries in terms of expanding the war. Our desire is to end the war as soon as possible, to restore stability and peace, and we are working on it,” said Degnan.

Vashadze claimed that the rejected aid implied Georgia would receive modern weapons through Lend, Lease and other mechanisms.
