Armenian, Georgian PMs meet in New York

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili in New York on Friday, September 23, Pashinyan's office says.

The Prime Minister weighed in on the occupation of the territories of Armenia as a result of the aggression unleashed by Azerbaijan against the sovereign territory of Armenia and the resulting situation.

Garibashvili emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and stability in the region and reaffirmed Georgia's readiness to contribute to it.

The latest round of fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. At least 207 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said on Monday.
