To a question about the repatriation of Armenians living in Georgia, Pashinyan replied:
“I believe that Armenians living in Georgia live in their home country and that they should be proud of Georgian citizenship.
It is a very important status and we must be interested in Georgia to be a strong and developed country.
From for its part, Georgia must also be interested in Armenia to be strong and developed.”
