YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian described Armenia and Georgia as “the closest friends” in the region as he met with his Georgian counterpart, Mikheil Saakashvili, in Yerevan over the weekend.
Saakashvili arrived in the Armenian capital Saturday on a two-day working visit which Sarkisian’s office said focused on “a broad range of issues” of mutual interest.
A statement by the office said the two leaders hailed a more than 10 percent increase in Georgian-Armenian trade registered last year and discussed ways of further facilitating transport communication between the two neighboring nations. It said they pledged to make sure that vehicles cross the Georgian-Armenian border “almost without stops.”
