/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Mitq analytical center, Javakhk Association and
Yerkir Union has organized a rally in front of the Georgian Embassy in
Yerevan to demand immediate release of the Armenian activists in
Javakheti, respect for the rights of the Armenian population and
determination of the AAC Georgian Diocese legal status.

“Georgia is our friendly state and the parliament should respect the
rights of the Armenian community. The Georgian government should
recognize the Armenian language as the second state language in
Javakheti,” said Shirak Torosyan, leader of Javakhk Association.

The rally, which was authorized by Yerevan city administration,
brought together some 500-600 people. The initiators handed a
statement to Georgian Ambassador to Armenia, who promised to bring it
to the notion of the Georgian leadership.
