Georgia, Tbilisi, July 14 / Trend N.Kirtzkhalia /
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili inspected radar installations at the construction site of the Poti airport this week, a Georgian governmental press service reported.
"The Russians blew up our radars and destroyed our airport infrastructure," he said. "But we are building better radars. Destroy them again and we will build them even better. That is our destiny. The most important thing is to build a very large airport. These radars mean that the primary infrastructure is already ready. An airport means many employed people."
He stressed that Poti will have a near 100-percent employment rate.
The Poti airport will be the largest in the Caucasus and is scheduled to open in 2012.
