PM Garibashvili to propose Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative to promote stability in Caucasus region

“Our goal is to ensure peace and stability in the entire region. In the South Caucasus, I propose what I am calling the Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative to promote stability in our region,” Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili addressed the 76th session of the UN General Assembly.

Georgian PM stressed his country stands ready to host an international gathering in Tbilisi to discuss the prospects of the Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative involving the ‘South Caucasian brothers’ and international partners.

“From a geopolitical perspective, the Black Sea region is growing ever more important. The Black Sea is on the front lines of a dynamic regional chess match. It is a microcosm of conflict management; if we can maintain peace and stability here, we can do so elsewhere.

Therefore, our goal is to ensure peace and stability in the entire region. In the South Caucasus, I propose what I am calling the Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative to promote stability in our region.

This format will facilitate dialogue and confidence-building, and lead to the implementation of practical solutions to regional issues of common interest with our US and EU partners.

Georgia stands ready to host an international gathering in Tbilisi to discuss the prospects of our Peaceful Neighborhood Initiative, involving our South Caucasian neighbours, our brothers, and international partners,” Georgian PM delivered.

Irakli Garibashvili is confident that the wider Black Sea region and broader European and global security would benefit from sustainable peace and a common strategic outlook for the South Caucasus.

“Let us begin with small steps to build trust. Then we can move toward resolving other regional and global issues together.

Sustainable peace and a common strategic outlook for the South Caucasus will benefit the wider Black Sea region and enhance broader European and global security.

Dear friends, let me conclude where I began: we are here today as a testament to the power of collective action.

Whether it is the fight against the pandemic, financing development to advance the quality of life or the need for collective action to maintain peace, we must act together to live together,” Georgian Prime Minister stated.
