Today, Administrator D'Agostino was in Georgia to view activities that are part of NNSA's Second Line of Defense program.
NNSA issued a press release about U.S.-Georgia cooperation on nuclear security activities. During a news conference in front of NNSA-funded radiation detection equipment installed at the Tbilisi airport, Administrator D'Agostino said:
"I am proud of the strong cooperation between the United States and Georgia on important security issues. Our countries and our Presidents share a commitment to keeping nuclear and radiological material out of the hands of terrorists and smugglers. I am honored to be here in Georgia to get a firsthand look at the impact of our cooperation in recent years."
