St.Gevork's Church in Tbilisi that collapsed last week is going to be restored within a year.


This was reported today by Russia's Ambassador to Georgia Grigor Tabatadze during his meeting with Secretary of National Security Council of Armenia Artur Bagdasaryan, agency Novosti-Armenia reports.

As was reported earlier by GeorgiaTimes, the Armenian Church of Saint Gevork built in Tbilisi collapsed in November.

Before that, a protest action was held in front of the Georgian Embassy in Yerevan against the inactivity of the Georgian authorities in respect of preserving Armenian churches in Tbilisi.

The action was attended by several hundreds of people who demanded that the Georgian government and the Georgian Orthodox Church should provide a legal status to the Georgian diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church, bring back Armenian churches and respect and save cultural values of the Armenian people.

In the course of today's meeting, the parties also discussed the issues concerning the Armenian-Georgian relationship. Participants of negotiations underlined that the discussion is based upon traditions of multi-century friendship between the two countries and there are no such problems that could not be resolved by means of joint discussions.

Bagdasaryan also touched upon the issues related to the lands belonging to Armenian Apostolic Church and the settlement of social and economical problems of Javakh (a region of Georgia populated by Armenians).

In response, Tabatadze pointed out that the problems of Javakh are a primary concern of the Georgian authorities.
