Javakh expatriate community in Russia is against Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku project2011-04-08 19:31
Javakh expatriate community in Russia speaks against the project of constructing a railway connecting Kars with the railways of Georgia that run further to Azerbaijan and Central Asia - the Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku project. This was stated in the materials of the community's press service. The statement disseminated by the community before the Georgian foreign minister's visit to Armenia goes as follows: "Georgia comes to understand by Adzharia's experience what an open border with Turkey has led to. Georgia wants to do the same with their eastern provinces, that is, to open a border with Javakh, stuff it with low-quality and cheap products, invest money and, ultimately, realize its political-economical expansion in the given territory populated by Armenians".gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We say that the realization of this project contradicts the interests of both Samtskhe-Javakh region and Armenia, for it will enhance Turkish intrusion in the region and fix Armenia's communication blockade, - goes the statement of the Javakh community. - We believe that the construction of a railway from Turkey to Georgia and further to Azerbaijan bypassing Armenia will draw a line under Armenia's communication aspirations and will make its complete isolation a stated fact".
In its statement, the community demands that the Georgian authorities give up further construction of the railway main line. In case the construction is continued, it is warning about the probable actions preventing the construction works "by all civilized means available".
Besides, Javakh expatriate community if Russia is calling on Armenian and Georgian government to discuss the issue of canceling the construction of the Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku railway among other issues of the upcoming meeting.
Let us remind you that in the context of the Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku project, it is planned to build a new 105-kilometer railway branch with 76 kilometers running along the territory of Turkey and 29 kilometers - along the Georgian territory.
