22 ethnic Armenian students from villages of Kumurdo and Poka were awarded the Georgian language certificates by Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani today at the education center of the Justice Ministry in Kvareli, Kakheti region.

The students passed Georgian language courses as part of the government programme aimed at caring for ethnic minorities and supporting their integration with the Georgian-language society.
