Georgian-Armenians connect Armenia's future development and attention towards Javakhk with Serzh Sargsyan, Tatchat Vardapetyan, the president of the Georgian-Armenian Unity NGO, told a news conference on Jan. 21.
He made the statement on behalf of the NGO.
While Vardapetyan reminded that Georgian-Armenians do not have the right to vote and cannot back the incumbent with their participation in February's vote, he added that there are many Georgian-Armenians who have RA citizenship and can go to the polls on the Election Day (February 18).
Speaking about the problems of Georgian-Armenians, Mr Vardapetyan said, "We should try to curb migration and open more workplaces as Javakhk is one of the largest Armenian communities and is closely linked to the homeland."
Regarding Armenian-Georgian relations, he said ‘the age-old fraternity is binding.'
"I am thankful to the Georgian Prime Minister [Bidzina Ivanishvili] who began implementing his campaign pledges."
Javakhk, an Armenian enclave, is the most underdeveloped and impoverished region in Georgia, with the highest rate of unemployment and the lowest rate of state investment.
