Georgia won't suspend construction of Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway2012-12-24 12:55

At the same time, he expressed concern that after the railway Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku starts operating the cargo turnout at the others currently operating directions of the "Georgian Railway" is likely to decrease. "The project is interesting; however, the economic issues are still in the first phase. Specifically, there is concern that with the entry into operation of the Kars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi-Baku railway freight turnover of the old country railway routes, as well as Georgian ports, will reduce", Ivanishvili said. He expressed the hope that this problem will eventually be resolved.
Previously, as reported by the Interfax, Bidzina Ivanishvili had questioned the feasibility of the construction of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway.
"Maybe I will have to raise these issues during my upcoming visit to Azerbaijan. We'll gently explain our friendly country that at some stage this program may appear unuseful for us, and that the issue may require improvement", Ivanishvili said.
