  • RFE/RL's Georgian Service

The speaker of the Turkish parliament is on a three-day visit to Georgia.

Cemil Cicek arrived on November 2.

Cicek is scheduled to meet with his Georgian counterpart, Davit Usupashvili, and Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on November 3.

On November 4, he will head to the capital of Georgia's Ajara Autonomous Republic, Batumi.

While in Batumi, Cicek will hold talks with the ead of the province's government, Archil Khabadze.

He is also expected to visit a mosque in Batumi.

Georgia is predominantly Orthodox Christian but Ajara, which borders Turkey in the southwest, is home to many Muslims.
