/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "The report that up to 10000 Meskhetians next year
will be moved from Azerbaijan to Georgia and settled in the Javakhk
region, I think, somewhat exaggerated, and this event would not be the
large-scale," told a head of Political Science
Department of the Caucasus Institute Sergey Minasyan .

According to the analyst, most Meskhetians will be resettled in
Akhaltsikhe and Aspindze areas of Javakhk where in 1950 Georgians were
resettled. "The settlement of Meskhetians can not have such a scale
for the simple reason that the local population of Georgia
categorically against this, and moreover, the socio-economic situation
in this country does not allow to implement such large-scale
projects," Sergey Minasyan said.
