Armenia gives high priority to relationship with Georgia, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said at today's joint press conference with his Georgian counterpart Giorgi Margvelashvili in Yerevan.


Sargsyan said that development of the bilateral relations is the pledge of stability in the region.  "Strengthening the friendly relations with Georgia is a priority in Armenia's foreign policy. I believe the difference between the foreign political vectors, particularly, Armenia's decision to join the Customs Union on the one hand and Georgia's initialing of an Association Agreement with the EU on the other hand should not hinder the economic cooperation of the two countries but should open new opportunities for interaction of business circles", said Sargsyan.


He also stressed the need to cooperate within international structures and to display a balanced approach to the issues of mutual interest. "We agreed that the regional conflicts should be resolved peacefully on the basis of international principles. We also stressed the need to preserve the cultural heritage of the two nations", the President said. In this context, he expressed his gratitude to ex-Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili who renovated the Armenian church in Tbilisi.
