Enemies trying to harm IranGeorgia ties: Ambassador

Baku, Part of IranGeorgia problems are caused by enemies and the beneficiary the two nations and governments, said Iran's ambassador to Georgia.

'The existing problems are partly caused by enemies of IranGeorgia relations; the one benefiting from such behaviors is neither the nations of Iran and Georgia nor governments of the two countries,' said Iran Ambassador to Georgia Javad Ghavam Shahidi in a press conference in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on Wednesday.

We and our friends must be vigilant not to allow the third parties to destruct the relations, said Ghavam Shahidi.

He added that the positive cultural atmosphere governing the two countries had provided Iranian tourists with great capacity to visit Georgia, but recent events caused difficulties for them.

Iranian embassy has held talks with Georgian highlevel officials regarding the issue and spares no effort in following the case. All the parliamentary and diplomatic capacities will be exploited, he stressed.

Answering another question about the Georgian media's claims on drug smuggling of Iranians, Ghavam Shahidi said despite international regulations, Georgian government has announced no further information to Iran and has prevented Iranians from entering there since then.
