Rossiskaya Gazeta recently stated that Abkhazian leadership is ready
to transport railway cargo to Armenia via Georgia. It has been said
however that this decision does not solely rely on Abkhazia. During
negotiations between Armenia and Georgia the issue of constructing a
special railway track between Batumi and the Armenian town of Gumri
was touched upon. The information was immediately responded to by Free
Georgia opposition party leader Kakha Kukava who expressed readiness
to negotiate and who is ready to react to the initiative of the de
facto Abkhazian leadership. The point was on the agenda before the
2008 Russian invasion when Georgia demanded the worthy and safe return
of Georgian IDPs to Abkhazian territory.
