Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili met with media representatives on Thursday and discussed the construction of large hydroelectric power plants in the country.

He added that the analysis on "Khudoni hydroelectric power plant" was conducted by specialists of companies with rich experience in the field.

"I said that no large hydroelectric power plants will be built without analysis," he said. "Very qualified and authoritative companies conducted the analysis on the "Khudoni plant". Its construction does not pose any threat, except a real one. We affirm that Khaishi village and a certain part of the area will be flooded."

According to him, the analysis was carried out at a very high level.

"We must make these decisions, but we must more carefully deal with the population," he said.

According to Ivanishvili, he hopes that the local population will understand the need to build a hydroelectric power plant for the development and progress of the country.

"The population will be provided with appropriate compensation," he said. "People will have good homes."
