/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili decorated
his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan with state Golden Fleece Order.

During a briefing, the Armenian President stressed the necessity to
maintain stability in Armenia and Georgia, which ensures transit for
70 percent of Armenian cargo.

"Armenia intends to develop relations with Georgia, harnessing the
potential at most. We also agreed to simplify the rules of crossing
the Armenian-Georgian border," he said.

conflicts cannot be resolved with the use of force. "The Caucasus is
situated at the crossroad of interests which should be used for the
glory of the region," he said.
