Abkhazian railway won't be restored soon

2013-04-15 12:07

Georgia is not conducting negotiations over the restoration of the Abkhazian railway connecting Armenia with Russia, the IA Regnum reports. This was announced by the Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze during an official visit to Yerevan.


"We are looking through the matter. We have not started working in this direction. Given Georgia's interests, we will try to understand how Georgia will benefit from this process. Only after that we may create a working group to study the situation, and only after that we make a decision ... It was just an idea. It was discussed during the visit of the Prime Minister in Yerevan, but nothing specific in this regard has been done," Maya Panjikidze said.

The Minister stressed that the Georgian side should consider the economic and political aspects of the issue to understand the benifits.

Earlire, the President of Abkhazia Alexander Ankvab stated that he saw no prospects for restoring railway communication.

According to him, if the Abkhazian side receives some concrete proposal, it is possible to conduct "collective" discussion. Ankvab noted that he understood the interest of other countries in the restoration of the railway communication through Abkhazia, but he "vaguely" conceived "how it can be done".
