Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said Georgia supports a dialogue in the region aimed to ensure long-lasting peace and stability while meeting with Armenian head of police Vahe Ghazaryan in Tbilisi earlier today. 

PM Garibashvili made the statement referring to the recent mediation between Armenia and Azerbaijan resulting in the release of 15 Armenian citizens back in June 2021 in exchange for providing Azerbaijan with maps of 97,000 anti-tank and anti-personnel mines in the Aghdam region. 

The 15 individuals were detained during the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Karabakh which took place from September till November 2020.
