Biden heads to Georgia, US flashpoint with Russia

TBILISI, Georgia (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden's travels are taking him to the former Soviet republic of Georgia today.

The visit comes almost a year after Georgia's war with Russia became the focus of a simmering conflict between Moscow and the West.

Biden is there for two days of talks with Georgia's president and opposition leaders. He'll be highlighting U.S. support for Georgia, a loyal ally concerned about Washington's efforts to court the Kremlin.

Biden arrives from Ukraine, another former Soviet nation hoping to strengthen ties to the U.S. and Europe.
