Turkish, Georgian Foreign Ministers Meet in Ankara


The foreign ministers of Turkey and Georgia (Hakan Fidan, Ilia Darchiashvili) met in Ankara today and discussed the implementation of strategic transit and energy projects. 

The two, according to a Georgian Foreign Ministry statement, reviewed the transit potential of Georgia, Azerbaijan and Turkey, focusing on the importance of the development of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway. 

They also discussed issues of cooperation in trade, economy and the energy sector.

The railway, connecting Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, became operational in October 2017 following several years of delays.

The European Union initially opposed the project, arguing it bypassed Armenia, but later welcomed the railway’s opening “as a “major step in transport interconnections linking the European Union, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Central Asia.”
