Russian media – Armenian government intends to start negotiations with Georgia on restoring Abkhazian railway
Armenia hopes that the new government of Georgia will show sober judgment regarding the Abkhazian railway, the Russian Politrus informs.
According to Politrus, the Armenian government intends to launch negotiations on restoration of Abkhazian railroad. These issues will be dominating in the negotiations between the new government of Georgia and Armenia.

“Armenia has been in a transportation blockade for 20 years now. We’ve been searching for transportation options. The time has come to solve the problem of restoring the Georgian-Abkhazian section of the railroad and this must be solved politically”, the co-chairperson of Armenian-Russian inter-parliamentary commission Niokolay Rizhkov said.
He declares that the customs union will assist restoring railroad transport and if this happens, the situation will be significantly changed.
Following the Politrus, restoring the 80km. section of the railroad, will benefit Georgia too, as wagons loaded with export will be sent from Georgia to Russia and a lot of Russian tourists will arrive from Russia, who can’t have a holiday in Georgia due to the costly air tickets now.
According to the edition, railway transport will also benefit Abkhazia, as there will be additional work places.
“The new work places will be very important for the Abkhazian population, most of which go to the Krasnodar district to work. Abkhazia’s budget which is subsidized by Russia will be able to be on its own”, Politrus informs.
