Georgia: Railway communication with Abkhazia won't be restored

2012-11-28 15:14

The issue of resumption of rail traffic through Abkhazia, including the restoration of the Abkhazian railway inoperating since 1992, was removed from the agenda. According to the RIA Novosti, this was announced today by the Minister for Reintegration of Georgia Paata Zakareishvili.


"This issue has been closed almost immediately after the Abkhaz side had shown no interest in it. So, the issue was closed almost immediately after this idea had been voiced", Zakareishvili told reporters.

Railway communication between Georgia and Russia through Abkhazia was interrupted after the conflict of 1992-1993.

Recall, we reported that Georgia intended restoration of railway communication with Russia through Abkhazia. This was also announced by the Minister for Reintegration of Georgia Paata Zakareishvili in early November.

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