South Caucasus Group

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he next plans to visit the South Caucasus group of countries to discuss (a) bi-lateral relations and (b) broader global issues. (306826)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has no current plans to visit the region. Baroness Kinnock visited Georgia in June 2009 and met with President Aliyev when he came to the UK in July 2009. In recent months Ministers and senior officials have also had a series of meetings in London with counterparts from the South Caucasus, including the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Georgia, Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia and Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan. I hope to visit the region soon.
