Georgia and Azerbaijan should stay together – Ilia II

2010-12-21 16:14

11604.jpegPatriarch Catholicos of All Georgia Ilia II stated that territorial and ethnic conflicts in the territory of Azerbaijan and Georgia are alike.


According to Interfax, while talking to Azerbaijani journalists, the Georgian patriarch underlined the similarity of the situations around Nagorny Karabakh, Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "I believe the conflicts in the territory of Azerbaijan and Georgia are alike and we should solve these problems together and in a peaceful way", - he underlined.

Ilia II stressed that they should be solved in the nearest time; otherwise, the situation might grow into big conflicts.

Let us remind you of the recent territorial argument between Tbilisi and Baku concerning the David Garedzhi monastery complex. It was reported that the Azerbaijani party did not accept Tbilisi's offer to provide it with other near-border areas in exchange for David Garedzhi complex. Georgia offered Azerbaijan to shift the border southwards of the Mount of Udabno but the Azerbaijani party rejected the offer.

The altitude where the monastery complex is located is strategic for Azerbaijan, for it gives the view of the near-border region of Armenia.

Besides, Azerbaijani sources assert that the monuments at the David Garedzhi monastery complex mostly have Albanian origin, and since the Azerbaijani party is the heir of Albanian culture, David Garedshi belongs to it.
David Garedzhi is an ancient Georgian cultural and religious monument being the main reason for the delay in demarcation and delimitation works at the Georgian-Azerbaijani border.
