2009-09-08 16:28

Official Tbilisi doesn't consider recognition of Armenian language in Javakheti region [Georgian region populated with Armenians], said Temur Iakobashvili, Georgian State Minister for Reintegration Issues, at today's meeting with Georgian ambassadors abroad and Georgian government -


"We don't even think about declaration of Armenian language as regional", Iakobashvili stated.

On September 1st the President of Armenia Serzh Sarsyan proposed Tbilisi to recognize Arnenian language as regional in Javakheti region. "I believe that recognition of Armenian language as regional in Georgia, registration of the Eparchy of Armenian Apostolic Church, maintenance of Armenian monuments will only favor strengthening of Armenian-Georgian friendship and deepening of mutual trust atmosphere", he said.

At the same time Grigol Vashadze, the Foreign Minister of Georgia, who had recently paid a visit to Yerevan, commented upon the proposal and said that Georgia was ready to discuss ‘any ideas with our Armenian colleagues" , and highlighted that irrespective the status the Armenian language would have, Georgian citizens of Armenian origin would be protected and would enjoy rights equal to the ones of any other peoples residing in Georgia.
