US Vice President to visit Georgia tomorrow

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is on his way to Estonia to begin a visit to three countries that have expressed concerns about Russia's intentions in their regions. "And the president made it very clear that very soon he will sign the sanctions from the Congress of the United States to reinforce that", he said, adding the United States has hope the Russian government would change its behavior.

Margvelashvili said the Georgian army will start two weeks of exercises with the United States and other partner countries on July 30, the day before Pence's visit to Tbilisi.

The vice president and his wife, Karen Pence, arrived in the Estonian capital, Tallinn, to kick off the European tour that also includes stops in Georgia and Montenegro.

The U.S. military displayed Patriot missiles in Lithuania earlier this month after having used them in an exercise there.

Georgian leaders believe Pence's visit is the demonstration of a strong U.S. support towards Georgia.

In a press pool interview, Pence said he was sent to Europe by President Donald Trump "with a very simple message".

While in Estonia, Pence will meet with Prime Minister Juri Ratas as well as with leaders of Latvia and Lithuania. "And that is that America first doesn't mean America alone", Pence said. President Trump has questioned Article 5 in the past, though he has more recently affirmed his commitment to defending fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members.

Kelly said Pence's visit will be a strong message that USA supports Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity. The so-called "Zapad" ("West") drills will see Russian Federation showcase new hardware and upgrade existing systems in its western military region. But the era of strategic patience is over", Pence said."The president of the United States is leading a coalition of nations to bring pressure to bear until that time that North Korea will permanently abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile program."The U.S. military on Friday confirmed that it had detected a ballistic missile launch from North Korea".

The vice president is expected to deliver a message of support for USA trade and investment with the countries while underscoring the US commitment to the security of the three nations, according to senior administration officials who briefed reporters about the trip on the condition that they not be identified by name.
