Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili attended the celebratory reception marking the US Independence Day and addressed attendees. 
He congratulated American people on the Independence Day and elaborated on friendly and strategic relations between the nations. According to him the Independence Day is one of the greatest days in the US, when Americans particularly express their pride and affection toward their homeland.
"Since my time in the US as a graduate fellow at the University of Illinois, I've appreciated the deep importance of the Fourth of July celebration to my American friends. My experience there gave me a personal connection to the United States that continues to inspire me to deepen the strong partnership between our nations.
I developed a particular fondness for the warm and welcoming people of Illinois. And we are lucky in Tbilisi to have an Illinois native as US Ambassador to Georgia. Ambassador Kelly, I hope that you feel as much at home here as I did during the time I spent in your wonderful state.
July 4th is a celebration of America's strong and lasting values - chiefly among them freedom, democracy and rule of law.
These are values that Georgia shares and adheres to. We are proud to stand as a reliable geopolitical ally and strategic partner of the United States as it marks its 240th birthday,"- Prime Minister noted
According to Giorgi Kvirikashvili, the US has always stood with Georgia. That support has helped Georgia emerge as a regional economic hub and a beacon of democracy, progress, and stability.
In his speech Prime Minister outlined new global challenges and importance of cooperation in the area of global security. 
"During my visit to the US in April, Vice President Biden and I discussed the future path to continued progress for Georgia and the deepening of ties between our two nations for the next 25 years and beyond.
Just recently, US and Georgian armed forces held the Noble Partner joint-training exercise, a testament to the strong security cooperation between our countries. The exercises delivered training to the light infantry company that Georgia contributes to the NATO Response Force, and helped Georgia take steps to enhance our territorial self-defense capabilities.
Our unity is especially important in the aftermath of brutal terrorist attacks against whole civilized world. It is vital to show our readiness and determination to stand united in the fight against terrorism and other global security threats we face today," - Giorgi Kvirikashvili stated.
Prime Minister of Georgia thanked the US Government for supporting Georgia's sovereignty and European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations.
The event marking 240th anniversary of the US statehood was hosted by Ambassador Ian Kelly. Members of legislative and executive branches of government, diplomats and representatives of various sectors of society attended the event.
