Despite the foreign political choice of our countries, understanding the importance of relations with Armenia, Georgia hopes for their development, an expert of the Centre for Strategical Studies (Tbilisi), Georgi Gvimradze, told ArmInfo correspondent when commenting on the results of Georgian president's visit to Armenia.
"The new government of Georgia came to the power at the period when a rather important foreign political issue was on the agenda of both Georgia and Armenia. I mean initialing of the Association Agreement with the EU. At present we have been waiting for signing the Association Agreement and DCFTA, while Armenia is joining the Customs Union. So, I think the key task of Tbilisi and Yerevan in the short term prospect is to draw out the ways and machinery which would make it possible to combine these arrangements without creation of obstacles to our partnership in the economic direction, first of all", - he said.
The expert also added that in Georgia they understand the importance of partnership with Armenia and, despite foreign political preferences of the two states, hope for their development. At the same time, he emphasized that establishment of relations with Russia is also a sensitive topic of the Georgian policy.
