Georgia FM Salome Zurabishvili to visit Yerevan to discuss
cooperation prospects and regional problems

YEREVAN, July 21 (Itar-Tass) – Prospects for cooperation between
Georgia and Armenia and regional problems will be the focus of
attention at talks that are to be held between the Armenian
leadership and Georgia’s Foreign Minister Salome Zurabishvili, who
arrives here on Wednesday. This will be the new Georgian Foreign
Minister’s first visit to Armenia.

Zurabishvili is to meet with Armenian President Robert Kocharyan and
other members of the State leadership of the republic, and hold talks
with her Armenian counterpart Vartan Oskanyan.

The ports of Poti and Batumi on the Black Sea coast and Georgia’s
railway are the only way for the delivery of goods, specifically fuel
and food, to Armenia. “It is very important to Armenia that Georgia
be a stable and dynamically developing state,” Robert Kocharyan
pointed out.
