Tbilisi, DFWatch – Armenia’s membership to the Eurasian Economic Union is not an obstacle but rather an opportunity of ‘mutual enrichment and opening of new opportunities’, Minister of Justice of Georgia said in an interview with Mediamax, Armenian e-newspaper.

“The Georgian people has already made a choice toward the EU and it doesn’t at all rule out cooperation and doesn’t cross out the centuries-old friendship between our peoples and states,” Thea Tsulukiani, the minister, said.

“Armenia’s membership to the EEU and Georgia- EU Association Agreement shouldn’t be considered a problem. Vice versa, we take it as an opportunity of mutual enrichment and opening of new opportunities, including economic ones, for the two states,” she added.

Thea Tsulukiani, the justice minister, along with the minister of penitentiary, Giorgi Mghebrishvili, participates in the bilateral Armenian-Georgian Judicial Forum in Yerevan upon an invitation of her Armenian counterpart, Hovannes Manukyan.

On Thursday two Georgian ministers, Tea Tsulukiani and Giorgi Mghebrishvili, paid tribute to the memorial of Armenian Genocide victims.
