WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama said on Monday the United States and Georgia were exploring the possibility of a free trade agreement to expand commerce and strengthen trade relations.

In a White House meeting with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, Obama said the two countries had agreed to start a dialogue that would look at various trading options "including the possibility of a free trade agreement."

He did not lay out a timetable for the process.

"Obviously there's a lot of work to be done and there are going to be a lot of options that are going to be explored," Obama told reporters in the Oval Office, with Saakashvili sitting beside him.
