Georgian Minister of Foreign Affairs Grigol Vashadze met with representatives of legislative and executive authorities of Egypt, RIA Novosti reports.
"The meeting with the Minister of Foreign Trade and Economy covered several promising directions of cooperation between Georgia and Egypt in economic sector. This is first of all the use of the transit capabilities of Georgia," Vashadze said. According to Egyptian agency MENA, the main subject of the negotiations in Egyptian capital was the use of Georgian port Poti as the main transit hub for delivery of Kazakhstan grain to Egypt.
