Georgia is ready to host a meeting of Armenian and Azerbaijani representatives in Tbilisi for the purpose of holding a dialogue, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia wrote on his Facebook page.

Gakharia noted that another military confrontation between Armenia and Azerbaijan has created a grave situation.

“We all understand that further escalation of the situation will have an extremely negative impact on the security of the entire region. We once again call on the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and international actors to make the most of the available opportunities to end the escalation and resume dialogue,” he said.

Gakharia said that Georgia has good neighborly relations with both Azerbaijan and Armenia.

“Historically, our ethnic Azerbaijani and Armenian citizens living in Georgia have always played a great role in the development and strengthening of our country, as well as the entire region. At the same time, their peaceful coexistence is a good example demonstrating that Georgians, Armenians, and Azerbaijanis have the potential to turn the entire South Caucasus into an area of peace and development,” the prime minister concluded.
