Relations with Georgia are excellent. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary visited Tbilisi on 14-15 August and met President Saakashvili in New York on 27 September. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister welcomed the Georgian Prime Minister to London on 19 September.

Throughout events in Georgia this summer, we have worked closely with partners in the EU, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, NATO, G7 and UN to reverse Russia's encroachments into Georgian territory outside the conflict zones, address immediate humanitarian needs, assist Georgia's economic recovery, foster long-term peace and stability, and encourage Georgia's domestic reform programme.
