She has also hoped that her visit to Tbilisi will contribute to the development of the economic relations between Georgia and the European Union. Merkel has said it on August 23 at a joint press conference with the prime minister of the country Mamuka Bakhtadze. On Friday, August 24, Merkel will hold meetings with heads of the oppositional organizations of Georgia. On the same day she will go on a visit to Yerevan, and from there — to Baku. In Azerbaijan the German chancellor will discuss with the president Ilham Aliyev the bilateral relations, Nagorno-Karabakh and also power questions, including the Southern Gas Corridor project on which gas from the Shah Deniz field will be delivered to Europe through Turkey. Why Merkel has decided to organize a tour across the countries of Transcaucasia? Opinion of the German political scientist Alexander Rar: Alexander Rar is a journalist, the political scientist "Madam Merkel cares for the place in the history, she needed to be governed not much years Germany. She has seen in the end what just in the direction of Central Asia, the former Soviet Union, except as Ukraine, she did little. It seems to me, in this plan it is just routine trip which has been planned long ago and which just has now turned out. The second: Germany as the leader of Europe has to make active somehow the European east policy which just collapses. One part of the European states wants to build the buffer states from Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Georgia against Russia. Other European countries want to build joint space with Russia from Lisbon to Vladivostok, including all Post-Soviet republics there. Merkel, of course, for the second idea. In what Germany is interested in this region? To lay ways to own business, this is Merkel can make. I think that between some companies in the presence of Merkel and presidents of these states some projects will be signed. Hardly will make some big political strategy of Merkel with these regions". The Transcaucasian tour of Merkel will be devoted to generally economic problems, the CEO of the Russian council for the international affairs Andrey Kortunov:andrey Kortunov the CEO of the Russian council for the international affairs "Believes I think that there will be many questions concerning economic cooperation: a question of the German investments, a question of interaction of these countries with the EU, because at each of these countries the relations with Brussels. If, say, Georgia has the status of the associated member, then Armenia has no him, she is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union. However the last agreement between Yerevan and the EU interestingly in many respects also goes rather far. With Azerbaijan there is a question of a power corridor, diversification of energy supplies
