In total there are six Armenian churches in Georgia which are
being Georgianised, said Hovakim priest Manukyan, the director of
inter-church relations office, in a press conference today. Five
churches are in Tbilisi and the sixth is in Akhalckha.

"We wish the churches to get back as they belong to Georgian-Armenian
church looking back to history" he said. During the Soviet era
Armenian churches have been robbed and destroyed bit now it is time
to return them back to their owner as they are part of Armenian
cultural heritage.

Law "on Religion" does not work in Georgia which is a serious
gap. Correspondent activities should be taken to register the churches
and define the ownership.
