According to Khakov, the initial volume of delivery from Armenia to Turkey will amount 1-2 mln tons per year. On October 1st in Yerevan a sitting of the South Caucasian Railroad and Georgian Railroad will be held, aimed to establish full-fledged cooperation between the companies.
Khakov also mentioned that due to the work of South Caucasian Railroad the volume of passenger delivery from Yerevan to Batumi and back increased by 40 per cent, and exceeded 27 000 passengers.
Previously Georgian experts repeatedly stated that in case of opening Armenian-Turkish border the country will face economic and geopolitical losses, and will lose its dominant role of the transit country. Political scientist Giya Khukhashvili stated that in this case the degree of communicational dependency of Armenia from Georgia will decrease, and it can lead to intensification of separatist spirits of the "hot heads".
