An Armenian delegation headed by Armenia’s President Serzh Sargsyan recently paid an official trip to Tbilisi to meet to meet with Georgia’s Armenian community representatives and visit the Armenian church in Tbilisi’s Havlabar district.

The visit of the Armenian President is considered to be serious stimulus for Armenian-Georgian business ties to be developed. The guest had meetings with Georgian President, Chairman of the Parliament Davit Baqradze and Patriarch of all Georgians Ilya the Second. In a joint meeting with his Georgian counterpart, the Armenian president said that both Armenia and Georgia establish their relations in the spirit of good neighbourhood and long-term mutually beneficial co-operation.

“The most important component of our co-operation is sincere dialogue, concrete and practical work for security provision of our states, as well as resist the challenges and threats”, Sargsyan’s said. He stressed that regional co-operation will alleviate tension in the region and establish more favourable conditions for regulation of conflicts. Sargsyan also noted that physical volumes of trade turnover which exist between Armenia and Georgia are small for both countries.
