Georgian envoy hails Jordan’s stabilizing role in Mideast

Amman, Georgian ambassador Gregory Tabatadze said on Monday that his country shares Jordan’s vision of finding political solutions to various regional issues on the basis of UN resolutions to bring about regional peace and stability.

He told a press conference to mark his country’s national day and the centennial anniversary of the founding of the first republic of Georgia that his country’s position constitutes “the proper platform for economic and trade cooperation”, stressing Tbilisi’s appreciation of Jordan’s role, under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah II.

The envoy noted that Georgia’s Prime Minister had met with His Majesty last year to listen to his views on regional developments, and was convinced and supportive of the King’s vision, stressing that the two countries politically saw eye to eye on the various issues.

“HM King Abdullah is a wise politician, who is making a great effort to bring peace and stability in the region, and there is a keen interest to hear his views on the various issues and developments,” Tbatadze said.

He also noted the key role of the Jordanian-Georgian Business Forum in promoting economic cooperation, saying that a number of Jordanian companies had been brought to Georgia, and that there is interest from Georgian firms to invest in the Kingdom.

The envoy said that Georgia last year was one of the key tourist destinations for Jordanians, where more than 12,000 Jordanians had visited the Caucasus nation, expressing the hope that direct flights between the two countries will be resumed to further advance tourism and increase the exchange of goods and passenger traffic.
