Georgia | Church comes out against proposal of cross-border PA to settle dispute over monastery

The Georgian Orthodox Church issued a statement on December 9, coming out against the idea of creating a cross-border zone on the disputed border with Azerbaijan near the monastery complex of David Gareji, which has recently become the subject of intense debate between the two countries.

The monastery complex, tucked into rocks and caves that date back to the sixth century, is called David Gareji by the Georgian side, and Keshishdag by the Azerbaijani side.
