Georgian border guard chief Zaza Gogava and law enforcement chief Giorgi Grigalashvili arrived today for a three-day visit, during which they will sign a border protection cooperation agreement with their Estonian counterparts.

The Georgian officials will pay a visit to the Piusa and Värska guard stations, the Koidula railway and highway crossing points at the Russian border. The two will also take part at a commemorative ceremony dedicated to the 125th anniversary of Maj. Gen. Ants Kurvits - the first chief of the Estonian border guard. 

On the last day of the visit, the officials will sign, on behalf of Georgia's interior ministry, a cooperation agreement with the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board. 

The agreement will pave the way for the exchange of expertise on issues regarding border protection, risk assessment meetings, and workshops between the two countries.
