Armenian Leader Concludes Two-Day Visit To Georgia

Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian concluded a two-day official trip to Georgia on June 19 by holding talks with Georgian Parliament speaker Davit Usupashvili and senior lawmakers.

On June 18, Sarkisian and his Georgian counterpart, Giorgi Margvelashvili, discussed possibilities for the development of bilateral ties following Yerevan's plans to join a Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union and Tbilisi's signing of a free-trade treaty with the EU next week.

The presidents told journalists after the talks that they had exchanged opinions on ways to turn the two countries' "different paths" into new opportunities for Georgian and Armenian businesses.

Sarkisian said that the "constant strengthening of the Armenian-Georgian partnership" represents one of Armenia's foreign policy priorities.

Margvelashvili said Tbilisi and Yerevan share the same opinions on many issues concerning bilateral relations and regional cooperation.

RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
