Georgia’s Foreign Minister Addresses French Armored Vehicles' Transit to Armenia Through Georgia

Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili has spoken out regarding the transit of French armored vehicles through Georgian territory destined for Armenia. He emphasized that any nation holds the legitimate right to fortify its defense forces with conventional armaments allowed under international agreements.


Responding to questions about the delivery of French armored vehicles to Armenia via Georgia, Darchiashvili highlighted Georgia's stance on maintaining equitable transit opportunities for all nations. In an interview on the First Channel television of Georgia, he stated, "Georgia's position is that both countries should be given the opportunity to use the transit function that our country has, on equal terms. This is our answer to that question; and unnecessary insinuations are not appropriate in this regard."


The Foreign Minister rebuffed any insinuations and clarified the principled position of Georgia on the matter, emphasizing the country's commitment to providing fair and unbiased transit access to all nations.


Moreover, Darchiashvili reiterated Georgia's steadfast stance on the "3+3" format, asserting that Georgia neither currently nor in the future will participate in this framework. Instead, he highlighted the amicable and cooperative relationships that Georgia shares with its neighboring countries - Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan - through bilateral channels.
