Georgia, Tbilisi, July 19 / Trend, N. Kirtskhalia /
The Kakliskure area in Georgia's Kakheti region is on the verge of an ecological catastrophe.
If the Alazani River further damages the isthmus, then 180 hectares may become Azerbaijani land, the Georgian Rezonansi newspaper reported today.
The Alazani is a transboundary river. As a result, regional borders in the area are drawn based upon special principles. If the river erodes the isthmus, 180 hectares will become Azerbaijan's.
According to the Georgian Environmental Protection Agency Shore Protection Department chief specialist Rusudan Sturua, although the area has been studied numerously, Kakliskure was not included in a list of 15 sites where shore protection works must be conducted this year.
