Ammon News - Georgian Ambassador in Amman Zaza Kandelaki emphasized the crucial role Jordan played under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah II in achieving peace and stability in the region.

At a press conference on Monday celebrating Georgia's national day, he said Jordan and Georgia are eager to maintain their excellent relations and collaborate to enhance them further while building on previous accomplishments in diverse areas.

He underscored the significance of Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili's visit to Jordan last year, during which the foundation stone was laid for a Georgian cultural center in the Baptism Site that garnered the support and interest of Georgia.

The Georgian Cultural Center helped cement Jordanian-Georgian ties and attract more Georgian visitors for religious tourism in Jordan, stated Kandelaki, adding that the new center will encourage about 100,000 annual Georgian visitors to Jerusalem to pay a visit to Jordan.

Pointing to occasional direct flights between the two countries, Kandelaki said, "We seek to organize regular flights to enhance economic cooperation and tourist exchange since Georgia is a top tourist destination for Jordanians."

He said that there are many common factors between the two countries in that they both play a pivotal role in achieving security and stability in the Middle East and Caucasus regions while also enjoying security and stability themselves.

The envoy stated that the economic cooperation between the two sides is currently limited and falls short of their ambitions, but there is potential for growth and development as they work towards advancing their collaboration.

In response to a question, he stressed the importance of the Palestinian and Israeli sides returning to the negotiating table to reach a step-by-step political solution.
