Armenian PM invites Georgian counterpart to visit Armenia

TBILISI. May 30 (Interfax) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said he believes there are no insurmountable problems in Georgian-Armenian relations.

"Our countries have common short-term and long-term interests. We should work on new projects. There are no unsolvable issues between our countries," Pashinyan said at a joint news briefing with Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili on Wednesday.

Pashinyan said he invited Kvirikashvili to visit Armenia.

Relations with Georgia occupy a special place in Armenia's political agenda, he said.

"During our meeting, we mentioned the need for an intensive political dialogue, touched upon cooperation in such areas as transport, energy, tourism, and culture. Despite the cooperation existing between us, we also have unused potential in many areas," Kvirikashvili said.

During his visit to Georgia, Pashinyan will travel to its southern districts and meet with locals, Kvirikashvili said.

"Georgian citizens of Armenian ethnicity are actively engaged in building the Georgian state," he said.
