Georgia's Finance Minister Dimitry Kumsishvili and USAID's Caucasus Mission Director Douglas Ball signed three agreements, according to which contracts concluded earlier amendments would increase in the total amount of grants- $ 22.5 million.

The agreements were signed during the visit of USAID's (the United States Agency for International Development) Caucasus Mission Director Douglas Ball to Tbilisi.

Earlier Georgia concluded defense treaties with both Armenia and Azerbaijan, and in both cases there was a point on joint working within the framework of cooperation with NATO. Nevertheless, it concerns more Azerbaijan, as Armenia is in the CSTO (the Collective Security Treaty Organization).
