Visiting Armenian President Robert Kocharian said after talks with
his Georgian counterpart Mikheil Saakashvili in Tbilisi on October 22
that they focused `at purely bilateral relations during the talks.’
Mikheil Saakashvili described relation between the two countries as
`brotherly and friendly.’

`We have discussed bilateral economic ties, cooperation in transport
sector… as well as cooperation between the law enforcement agencies,’
Robert Kocharian said.

The two Presidents have also discussed the issue of restoration of
the railway connection in Georgia’s breakaway Abkhazia, which will
enable landlocked Armenia to restore its railway link with its
strategic partner Russia.

`Restoration of the railway will be favorable not only for us, but
for Georgia as well. But it is Georgia’s prerogative to deal with
this issue,’ the Armenian President added.
