Finalised Armenian-Georgian Agreement on activities of border delegates

On 22–23 October 2014 in Yerevan, Armenia, the Joint Bilateral Workshop on Border Delegates gathered 20 officials representing the National Security Council of Armenia, the National Security Service of Armenia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia and the Border and Patrol Police of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia. The workshop was organised in the framework of two EU-funded projects, namely ‘Provision of Equipment and Infrastructure for the Bagratashen–Sadakhlo Border Crossing Point between Armenia and Georgia and Enhancement of their Capacities’ (BSIBM) and ‘Eastern Partnership cooperation in the fight against irregular migration – Supporting the implementation of the Prague Process Action Plan’ (EaP- SIPPAP), in cooperation with the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and United Nations Development Programme in Armenia (UNDP).

A draft agreement between the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia and the National Security Service of the government of the Republic of Armenia on the activities of border plenipotentiaries/border delegates was the focus of the workshop. The first day of the activity was dedicated to providing an update on the status quo of the draft agreement, clarifying the articles’ content, finalising it and discussing possible ways to facilitate its adoption. During the second day, Latvian experts presented EU good practice regarding the practical use of the agreement, and the parties involved finalised all articles of the agreement. At the end of the workshop, participants from both South Caucasian countries received a certificate for participating in this activity, and they expressed their willingness to sign the agreement as soon as possible.
