Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili discussed coordinated cooperation for attracting cargo in the Europe-Asia transport corridor with Rashad Nabiev, the Minister of Digital Development and Transport of Azerbaijan, in Tbilisi on Monday.
The two officials reviewed joint efforts that will “ultimately have a positive impact” on the economies of both countries, the Government Administration said.
The meeting highlighted the success of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, the Black Sea-Caspian Sea transport route, the Persian Gulf-Black Sea corridor and the green ports. The sides also stressed the importance of peace and stability for the development of the South Caucasus region, and long-term prosperity in the area.
Georgia supports peaceful cooperation in the South Caucasus region and is ready to facilitate regional dialogue on issues such as economy, trade and culture, Garibasvhili noted, adding his “peace initiative”, which envisages the establishment of a dialogue format and cooperation between Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia, served the purpose.
The conversation also touched upon the impact of the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine on the security situation in the South Caucasus.
