"This action contradicts Article 3 of the Constitution of Georgia which states that the power to administer Georgia's foreign trade and a unified system of energy is exclusively within the competence of the Georgian supreme national authorities," the special statement of the Foreign Ministry of Georgia says.
"The construction of the pipeline on Georgia's occupied territory and its further exploitation violates the Law of Georgia on Occupied Territories, which, based on Article 22 of the Georgian Constitution, prohibits any fiscal/economic activity on Georgia's occupied territories by any State, legal or physical entity, " the document continues.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia expresses its strong protest over the violation by Russia of the universally recognized norms and principles of International Law, Georgia's national sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of borders and this yet another gross violation of the national legislation," the special statement concludes.
