“Armenia is our friendly state and I respect their choice, but Armenian path and its relation with Russia and NATO cannot serve as a model for Georgia; it is in conflict with Georgia’s state interests,” UNM secretary general and former PM Vano Merabishvili said.

A senior UNM lawmaker Giorgi Gabashvili said that Armenia, which is a member of Russian-led Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and which cooperates with NATO but does not seek its membership, cannot serve as a model for Georgia’s foreign policy.

“It would amount to U-turn in Georgia’s foreign policy,” he said. “This is very alarming and very dangerous for Georgia.”
