    TBILISI, April 1, 2004. (RIA Novosti). Armenian Defense Minister and Security Council Secretary Serzh Sarkisyan is to pay a two-day visit to Tbilisi. He is to discuss the restoration of railway communication on the route Sochi-Tbilisi-Yerevan and regional security issues.

    "The Sochi-Tbilisi-Yerevan railway line is highly important for us because this is the only road linking Armenia and Russia," Mr. Sarkisyan told journalists at Tbilisi's airport.

    "During President Mikhail Saakashvili's visit to Yerevan we asked the Georgian side to help the restoration of railway communication. He considered our request with understanding and we hope to achieve success," he noted.

    According to Serzh Sarkisyan, at issue will be regional security problems, the reduction of railway tariffs and cooperation between the Georgian and Armenian security councils.
