Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili’s visit to Armenia will play a large role, but won’t be revolutionary since Saakashvili cannot completely reverse the existing situation, said Caucasus Institute Director Alexander Iskandaryan, speaking to journalists in Yerevan today.
“Georgia is a country that has great significance for Armenia, with which too many of its problems are tied, but, at the same time, many of its opportunities,” he said.
Iskandaryan added, for “elementary reasons” Armenia has two real neighbors. “Georgia is one of those two countries, which is a very important neighbor, through which territory 70% of goods imported into and exported from Armenia passes.”
In the analyst’s opinion, relations between Armenia’s and Georgia’s leaders are not on a sufficient level.
