Hearing on Synterra's claim against Russian Supervision Commission to be held next week
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 19 / Trend H. Veliyev /
The hearing on Synterra' claim against the Russian Supervision Commission in connection with the illegal delay in the construction of the Russia-Azerbaijan backbone is postponed, Russia's national operator Sinterra's Spokesman Yekaterina Andreyeva told Trend today.
The hearing on Synterra' claim against the Russian Supervision Commission, which according to operator's statement, prevents implementation of Russia- Azerbaijan project is prolonged due to failure of procedural obligations by the Commission.
Andreyeva said the hearing on the case was postponed due to the fact that the defendant failed to comply with procedural obligations and did not sent in due time feedback on the statement of claim.
After the decision to build trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone, Synterra received a building permit from the commission on federal relations and information technologies, headed by the Communication Minister Igor Shegolev. The next stage of approval was to be a permit for the design of transition from the Russian Supervision Commission, which refused Synterra to issue a formal conclusion referring to the letter of the Communication Ministry, signed by Deputy Minister Naum Marder .
Azerbaijan appealed to Russia to speed up implementation of agreements on laying trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone between Russia and Azerbaijan, Andreyeva said earlier.
Synterra and Azerbaijan's Azertelekom implement a project on construction of trans-boundary fiber-optic backbone between the two countries in the area of Derbent (Dagestan) - Guba (Azerbaijan).
Today, the Russian part of the infrastructure is fully prepared to completion of the project. Sinterra laid more than 180 kilometers of primary and backup fiber-optic line from the site of its national backbone network in Makhachkala before entering the border area with the Russian side.
