Georgia pursues anti-Armenian policy during past 2 centuries

PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenia has always been correct with Georgia as
regards the problems existing between the two states. Obviously, the
strategy has been exhausted, an Armenian expert said. "Armenia mustn't
forget the Armenian community in Georgia. Joining our efforts, we can
prevent Georgia from its further expansion over the Armenian
historical and cultural heritage," expert at Mitq analytical center
Vahe Sargsyan said during "Georgia's Anti-Armenian Policy" conference
in Yerevan.  Under the pretext of integration, Georgia oppresses
Armenian candidates for state posts and bans the native language in
Armenian schools, according to him.

"Georgia's anti-Armenian policy has a 2-century record. 90 years ago
Georgia let Turkish troops in Akhalkalaki and Akhaltsikhe to slaughter
40-50 thousand Armenians. During the soviet period, Tbilisi did its
utmost to isolate Georgia from Armenia. The same policy was preserved
after Georgia obtained independence. In 1990-ies, when Armenia was cut
off the entire world, Georgians constantly blew up the gas pipeline
and robbed trains. Now, Georgia fails to adopt a law on national
minorities, as required by the Council of Europe," he said.
