Burjanadze told the TV Channel TV Pirveli, that it was an “acquainting meeting.”
“It was very interesting - an acquainting meeting for us members of the opposition to share our ideas and viewpoints with the US Ambassador since we never really got to do that until now. We also talked about our plans,” reported Burjanadze.
