Azerbaijan Commences Power Supply to Georgia
Azerbaijan, Baku, 12 March / Trend corr S. Aliyev/ Azerbaijan commenced electric power supply to Georgia, the Vice-President of Azerenerji JSC Marlen Askarov said on 12 March.
Earlier, Russia temporary suspended power supply to Georgia through the high-voltage power main Kavkasioni due to repair work being carried out in the largest hydroelectric power station in Georgia - Inguri.
