28.03.24 15:16

Argentinian Foreign Minister Diana Mondino on Thursday said the strategic location at the crossroads of two continents would make Georgia a connecting “hub” between Europe and Asia.


In her remarks following a meeting with the visiting Georgian counterpart Ilia Darchiashvili, Mondino noted that Argentina was one of the first countries to recognise Georgia's independence in 1919 and has “continuous” diplomatic relations with Georgia.


“The traditional friendship between Georgia and Argentina will be further strengthened in the future. The strategic location at the crossroads of two continents gives Georgia a chance to become a bridge connecting Europe and Asia and acquire the status of a hub. Georgia should have hope for Latin America on its development path”, Mondino said.


“Georgia and Argentina have many things in common, including the fact that both countries have the best wine. We must work together to be able to define new ways and perspectives of cooperation”, she concluded.


To celebrate the visit of the Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili to Argentina, Mondino exhibited a historical decree by which the Argentinian President Hipólito Yrigoyen in 1919 recognised the independence of the first democratic republic of Georgia.
