79 Georgian school pupils to be returned to Georgia from United States

We have been working for 10 days and the Government of Georgia and the Government of the U.S. made the joint decision to return the 79 Georgian school pupils who are currently in the U.S. to Georgia using special means. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia.


“A flight from the United States to Doha will take place tomorrow, on 10 April. The flight will be operated by the American side. The transportation of the 79 children from Doha to Georgia will be ensured by the Government of Georgia. According to him, this is in accordance with their parents’ wishes.


I would like to thank the administration of the USA, our strategic partner. I would also like to thank, of course, the embassy in Georgia, its entire staff, and the Ambassador, Kelly Degnan. Furthermore, we have also cooperated with our Armenian colleagues. Upon their request, we will also transport 35 children - school pupils who are Armenian citizens - on this flight”, - said Giorgi Gakharia.
