Armenia is openly interested in stability in Georgia, Armenian
President Robert Kocharyan told today’s meeting in Yerevan with
visiting Georgian Foreign Minister Salome Zourabichvili.

The sides discussed Armenian-Georgian relations and prospects for
developing the South Caucasus region, Mediamax learnt from the
presidential press service. Since economic relations between the two
countries do not correspond to the genuine potential and aspirations
of Armenia and Georgia, Kocharyan said that it was necessary to
intensify the activities of the intergovernmental commission on
economic cooperation.

The Armenian president and the Georgian foreign minister also
discussed the prospects that emerged following the involvement of the
South Caucasus countries in the EU’s New Neighbourhood policy.
