Georgian Deputy FM Comments on Cooperation with Iran
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 4 Jun.'12 / 15:13

Georgia maintains cooperation with Iran in line with “internationally-recognized policy” as reflected in relevant UN resolutions, Nikoloz Vashakidze, Georgia’s first deputy foreign minister, said on June 4.

Asked at a news conference if Iran would be discussed in the context of regional security in talks with Hillary Clinton in Georgia on June 5, Vashakidze responded: “Iran has been an acute issue for a long time on the international agenda. The U.S. naturally is engaged actively in these processes, like the countries in the region, including Georgia.”

“Georgia follows internationally recognized policy in this respect, which is reflected in relevant UN resolution and fulfills requirements envisaged by these resolutions,” he said.

“At the same time Georgia has relations and cooperation with Iran in those fields, which are allowed by the international regime and no one has a problem about it; these are cooperation in the fields of economy, culture, tourism,” Vashakidze said, adding that no one has requested Georgia to scale down this type of cooperation with Iran.

“It is natural that exchange of views on this issue are taking place… including with Georgia and that’s a routine process,” the Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister said.
