Georgia intends to restore railroad traffic with Russia via Abkhazia

2012-11-02 12:29

Georgia intends to restore railway communication with Russia through Abkhazia. This was announced by the Minister for Reintegration of Georgia Paata Zakareishvili in an interview to the Kommersant.


According to the Minister, the parties should give up political element in this issue.

He said the issue has not been discussed at the government level, but some consultations took place. Zakareishvili believes that in this issue the sides must take into account solely economic factors.

"The railroad is still running: trains are moving, but only in the direction of Russia, not Georgia, since our previous government was opposed this", the Minister said. "If we start traffic in our direction, Abkhazia may get an alternative. This railway will benefit all: Russia, Georgia, Armenia", he added.

Recall, yesterday Georgia's former ambassador to Russia, a political scientist Zurab Abashidze was appointed personal representative of the Prime Minister of Georgia for Russia.

The authorities of Russia and Georgia "not just can, but they must engage in a constructive dialogue", Georgian State Minister for Reintegration Paata Zakareishvili said on Thursday during an online press conference.
