YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli arrived in Armenia for the 4th session of the Armenian-Georgian inter-governmental commission.
Nogaideli met with his Armenian counterpart Andranik Margarian to tackle a variety of issues between the neighboring countries–including the present state of Javakhk–a majority Armenian region in Georgia.
Margarian commended the Georgian government’s plans to improve socio-economic conditions in the impoverished region–and again confirmed the Armenian government’s readiness to cooperate in development programs.
The prime ministers also discussed the opening of the ferry line between Kavkaz and Poti–Armenia’s support of the re-opening of the Abkhazian section of the Georgian railway–construction of the Kars-Akhalkalak-Tbilisi railway–the establishment of a Georgian-Armenian university in Georgia–and the possibilites sfor direct flights between Yerevan-Batumi-Kabuleti.
Georgia’s delegation is composed of the country’s energy minister–as well as deputy ministers of foreign affairs–finance–economic development–and health and social security.
