Former Prime Minister of Armenia Hrant Bagratian responded to the statement made by the ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili about outrunning Georgia by Armenia with respect to the Gross Domestic Product first after Tigranes II, more commonly known as Tigranes the Great, King of Armenia.
Economist Bagratian said that Armenia was ahead of Georgia during Saakashvili’s rule in 2005-2009. He said he did not share the viewpoint of the former president of Georgia. Bagratian claimed that Armenia lived better than Georgia before the rule of King Tamar of Georgia historically.
“Mikheil Saakashvili has no information about the issue,” Portal aysor.am quoted the post of Hrant Bagratian in the social network.
