As reported the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia, Piloyan stated that Armenia and Georgia are not only centuries-old neighbors, but also fraternal and friendly countries.

Kvanchakhadze expressed gratitude to the representatives of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia for supporting their Georgian colleagues in putting out the forest fires in the Kharagauli National Reserve in Borjomi in August 2017.
