Visiting Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze met Friday with his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian.
“Armenia welcomes contacts which underlie further development of mutually beneficial relations,” Minister Nalbandian said.
The two men discussed Gyumri-Akhalthikhe-Bavra-Batumi highway construction, process of delimitation of the Armenian-Georgian border and energy cooperation. They also signed a memorandum on exchange of land for the diplomatic outposts.
Tomorrow, Mr. Vashadze will meet with President Serzh Sargsyan, the RA MFA press office said.
At that, Interfax news agency reported that Georgia is ready to discuss any ideas and proposals with Armenia, including giving to the Armenian language a status of “regional language”.
“We are willing to discuss any idea with our Armenian counterparts. Armenians living in our country are a part of our history and culture. The rights of Georgian citizens of Armenian descent will be protected,” the agency quoted the Georgian FM as saying.
