Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani says that new map materials found by Georgia may bring changes to the Georgian-Azerbaijani 2006-2007 agreement on border issues. 

On several occasions, the unagreed border has caused tension around Georgia’s 6th century David Gareji monastery complex which is located at the conditional border between Georgia and Azerbaijan. 

Zalkaliani mentioned the new materials during the first official visit of Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov in Georgia yesterday, expressing hope that the border issue will be settled through consensus.
