"I am confident that issues related to the David Gareja monastery will be resolved within the framework of friendly and strategic relations," said Giorgi Gakharia, Georgian Interior Minister, during his speech in parliament, ONA reports.
The minister said that the monastery is of great importance for the Georgian church: “The issue related to the monastery of David Gareji is very delicate. Everyone knows that this problem exists since 1996, is a post-Soviet echo. In certain years, the decision of this question was suspended. Despite the fact that the issue should have been resolved immediately. I can say that in the near future a commission will be created, and demarcation work will be carried out with the neighboring country. The Commission will begin its work immediately. Everyone understands that Azerbaijan is a strategic partner of Georgia, a fraternal country, ”said Giorgi Gakharia
