Armenian Defense Minister Visits Georgia to Discuss Bilateral Cooperation

TBILISI (Armenpress)-Armenian Defense Minister Michael Harutyunyan was in Georgia Friday meeting with troops from a special Georgian brigade as part of a three-day official visit to Georgia to mark, what the Georgian Ministry of Defense calls, the start of "bilateral military cooperation" between the two countries.
Harutyunyan met with his Georgian counterpart, Davit Kezerashvili, and Foreign Minister Davit Bakradze on Thursday. He is also due to meet President Saakashvili and Parliamentary Chairperson Nino Burjanadze.
"Although there have been very high level economic and political relations between our two countries, there has not been not a single agreement signed in the defense sphere between the two countries," echoed the Armenian Defense Minister said.
Seyran Shahsuvarian, a spokesman for the Georgian Defense Ministry told Armenpress that Armenian military officers were eager to learn about the brigade’s activities, one of which is a peace keeping mission.
"There have been no official relations between the defense ministries of the two countries and we discussed the possibility of enhancing relations," Kezerashvili said. "The first step will be to send our military attach? to Armenia."
