Statement by Charge d’Affaires Bridget Brink on the Death of Three Georgian Servicemen (August 31)
The entire U.S. Embassy community joins the Georgian people today in remembering three brave Georgians: Corporal Vladimer Khvedelidze, Solomon Tsiklauri and Archil Chokheli. They gave their lives while performing their duties in the Lopota gorge area. On behalf of the U.S. Embassy, I wish to extend our deepest sympathies to their families and friends, as well as to the many other Georgian servicemen who continue to risk their lives to ensure a more secure Georgia and a more peaceful world.
