Georgia hopes the delimitation and demarcation of the border with Azerbaijan will be completed in 2017, the country’s Deputy Foreign Minister, David Jalagania, told APA’s Georgia bureau on Tuesday.
“We aim to delimitate the rest of our border successfully. I’m much hopeful for this,” said Jalagania, who is also a co-chair of the Azerbaijan-Georgia intergovernmental commission on border delimitation and demarcation.
Jalagania said there are not serious problems regarding this issue.
“I would not call it a problem. It is a process. Each side has its own interests. We respect the interests of the Azerbaijani side. They are also aware of our interests,” the deputy minister said, expressing hope that the interests of both sides will coincide and everything will be decided on the basis of mutual understanding and priorities.
Bilateral meetings on border delimitation and demarcation will continue in 2017, Jalagania added.
