Deputy Prime Minister does not confirm negotiations on possible resumption of Abkhazian Railway and blames the opposition in lies.
Kakha Kaladze said that this topic has not been even discussed.
“I hear it for the first time; this is not the correct information. There was not even the discussion regarding this particular project in the government. The opposition says many things and lies, “- Kaladze declared to media.
Version of the opening of Abkhazia Railway has been raised after the meeting held between the Prime Ministers of Georgia and Armenia. After the meeting, the Prime Minister of Armenia stated that they have discussed alternative way of Larsi Checkpoint with the Georgian counterpart. He did not name the alternative routes, however, the media started to talk on an alternative rout via the Abkhazian Railway.
Opposition estimates raise of this topic as an open sedition and notes that “it will give lethal injuries to the territorial integrity and rules out return of refugees, and preservation of Georgian sovereignty”.
The opposition also talks on economic loss, in particular, they believe that the opening of the railway will weaken cargo turnover in Poti Port and harm our relationship with Azerbaijan. Discussion of the issue is not confirmed by the parliamentary majority as well.
