Georgia will recognize the Armenian Genocide sooner or later




Despite the different vectors chosen by Armenia and Georgia, the two countries will maintain good-neighborly relations in the future, expert of Georgian studies Alik Eloyants predicts.  He believes that Georgia will recognize the Armenian Genocide sooner or later.

Armenia and Georgia have enjoyed high-level relations for centuries and this will continue into future, the expert told reporters today. This was not hampered even by the fact that the two countries preferred two different vectors.

“As the development of Georgian-Russian relations has slowed down in the recent period, Armenia’s membership in the Eurasian Economic Union will help the Georgian partners get access to the Russian market,” he syas.

According to Eloyants, even Georgia’s good relations with Turkey and Azerbaijan are no obstacle to the good-neighborly relations with Armenia.

The expert reminded that Turkey is Georgia’s number one trade partner and raising the genocide issue would cause great harm to Georgia’s economy. Alik Eloyants is confident, however, that the Georgian Parliament will recognize the Armenian Genocide sooner or later.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
