US, Georgia agree to maintain economic pressure on Russia amid Ukraine war

The US and Georgia agreed to maintain economic pressure on Russia amid the ongoing war in Ukraine.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met Friday with Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed “the need to ensure Russia continues to feel the full economic costs of the sanctions, export controls, and other economic restrictions imposed by the US and a coalition of over 30 allies and partners on Russia to hold Putin accountable for his war in Ukraine,” the White House said in a statement.

Sullivan and Zourabichvili also discussed recent developments in Georgia, underlining the two nations’ common interest in Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration, according to the statement.

They also talked about Zourabichvili’s will for a “unified and inclusive approach to achieving the reforms necessary to advance Georgia’s candidacy for EU membership,” the statement added.
