05.05.19

According to Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani, Georgia and Azerbaijan agreed to resume the work of the delimitation-demarcation commission, and that movement at certain points of the Davit Gareji monastery complex, located at the border of the two countries, will be possible without difficulties.

The David Gareji Monasteries and Hermitages in Georgia is listed among the 7 Most Endangered Heritage Sites in Europe.

The site is a Georgian Orthodox cave monastery complex located in the Kakheti region of Eastern Georgia, on the half-desert slopes of Mount Gareji, 60–70 km southeast of Georgia's capital Tbilisi. The complex includes hundreds of cells, churches, chapels, refectories and living quarters hollowed out of the rock face.

Part of the complex is located in the Agstafa district of Azerbaijan which has many times been the subject of a dispute.
