The role of friendly groups operating in both parliaments was also emphasized, emphasizing that the vice presidents led them. RA NA Speaker noted that the platform of educational and cultural cooperation is a good incentive for developing Armenian studies centers or chairs in Georgian universities and Georgian language chairs in higher educational institutions of Armenia.

The parties discussed issues related to regional security. Alen Simonyan noted that Armenia is interested in strengthening regional security and stability. He added that the high level of relations between Armenia and Georgia is one of the critical factors in ensuring security in the South Caucasus and highly appreciated the interest of the Georgian side in maintaining peace and stability in the region.
