The Foreign Ministry of Georgia announced yesterday that the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina will name a public square after the capital city Tbilisi (Tiflis in Spanish) in honor of Georgia’s 100-year anniversary of independence.

Representatives from the Buenos Aires Provincial Assembly shared the decision with Georgian Ambassador to Argentina Irakli Kurashvili during a meeting with Argentine MPs held at the Embassy of Georgia.

The First Deputy Chairman of the Provincial Assembly, Francisco Quintana, presented Ambassador Kurashvili with a ceremonial diploma issued by the local legislature. Kurashvili thanked the Assembly for its decision.
