Armenian Prime Minister meets Georgian counterpart, attends Silk Road Forum in Tbilisi

A tete-a-tete conversation between the Prime Ministers of Armenia and Georgia Nikol Pashinyan and Irakli Garibashvili took place in Tbilisi, the press service of the Prime Minister of Armenia reported on 26 October. 


The interlocutors discussed issues on the agenda of Armenian-Georgian cooperation, including bilateral economic relations, the readout says. 

The regional developments were touched upon and the importance of taking consistent steps to achieve peace and stability was emphasized, the report says. 

On the same day, Nikol Pashinyan took part in the international forum “Silk Road” in Tbilisi. Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili, Prime Minister of Montenegro Dritan Abazovich, Prime Minister of Azerbaijan Ali Asadov and other high-ranking officials and representatives of international organizations attended the event.

Presenting the “Crossroads of the World” project, Pashinyan said in his speech: “It is obvious that our region – the South Caucasus – needs peace. What is peace? This is a state when countries live with open borders, are connected by active economic, political, cultural and human ties, have accumulated experience and traditions of resolving all issues diplomatically and through dialogue. This is the real world, and as you see, all this, i.e. open borders, economic, political, cultural ties, impossible without roads.”

A key element of the project is the development of communications between Armenia, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Iran: roads, railways, pipelines, cables, power lines.

At the same time, the project must respect the sovereignty and jurisdiction of the participating countries, and each country has the right to exercise border and customs control on its territory through its government agencies, and also ensures security.
