New Year Message from the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of RA to Georgia Yuri Vardanyan
Dear compatriots!

I heartily wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the coming year bring you health, happiness, peace and the fulfillment of your dreams.

It is a great honour for me to be designated Ambassador namely in Georgia - a country of great importance for us, where there is a big Armenian community the representatives of which have been living, working and creating on hospitable Georgian land for centuries. I attach particular importance to the diplomatic work with neighbouring countries, at the same time, of course, not calling into question the importance of relations with other countries.

Although six months are not enough for getting acquainted with the daily life, the main problems, and political and social activities of the Armenians living in Georgia, I still have had interesting meetings in the capital and in Djavakheti and got to know the general situation and the primary issues worrying people. I assure you that I shall do my utmost within the limits of my powers to assist you in overcoming the existing difficulties and facilitating your worries.

Dear Friends!

Recently, the most troublesome issue for us has been the situation as a result of the new visa regime in Georgia. Armenians living in Georgia, who became citizens of other countries due to different life situations, now face with a number of problems at the entrance to Georgia.
I assure you that we are working with the Georgian authorities on finding a final solution for this issue.
Dear compatriots!

We strive to ensure that Armenians living in Georgia would take their rightful positions in Georgian society and at the same time would stay true to their national roots in order to make a worthy contribution to the strengthening of the Armenian-Georgian age-old fraternal friendship, as it is usually said.

Once again I congratulate you on New Year and wish you prosperity, untroubled and happy life, warmth and harmony in your families.
