During his speech at the Silk Road Forum, Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Gharibashvili, introduced the government's peaceful neighborhood initiative. He emphasized the government's readiness to collaborate with neighboring and friendly countries, Armenia and Azerbaijan, with the aim of establishing enduring peace in the South Caucasus.

Gharibashvili stated, "Today, I am delighted to host both my esteemed colleagues, Prime Minister Pashinyan and Prime Minister Asadov. It goes without saying that long-term peace will benefit not only our countries but also the broader region, bringing well-deserved prosperity."

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan also addressed the Silk Road Forum, stressing the necessity of long-term peace for the Transcaucasian region.
