GEORGIA, AZERBAIJAN DONвЂ™T HAVE MORAL RIGHT TO PUT FUND IN CONSTRUCTION OF THE GARS-AKHALKALAKI-TBILISI RAILWAY, ARMENIAN FM
(Mediamax) вЂ" вЂњGeorgia and Azerbaijan donвЂ™t have moral right to put fund in the construction of the Gars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi railway,вЂќ Vardan Oskanian, the Armenian Minister of Foreign Affairs, stated in Yerevan.
вЂњThere is the Gars-Gumri railway, and we regard inexpedient to put limited international and internal financial resources in the construction of new highway,вЂќ he explained.
Oscanian noted that the Gars-Gumri railway did not function due to incorrect policy of Turkey. вЂњI would like to remind that Armenia stated about its readiness not to use initially the Gars-Gumri railway and launch it particularly for transit transportation between Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan,вЂќ he stressed.
Oscanian underlined that Armenia will struggle with the construction of the Gars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi railway convincing international donors, particularly, the European Union and the United States.
вЂњItвЂ™s impossible to frighten us by this and other regional projects. Even if the Gars-Akhalkalaki-Tbilisi railway is constructed, Armenia will not disappear from the world map. We will continue our forward development,вЂќ he underlined.
