ArmInfo. The alternative railway to Iran is necessity for Armenia,
member of the Armenian parliament co-chair of Association of
Armenian-Georgian business cooperation Vladimir Badalyan told
journalists today.

He also added if Armenia builds a railway towards Iran, opening of the
Abkhazian sector of the railway, that connects Armenia and Georgia with
Russia, will become the next step of the republic in this direction.

'Railway is a form of business and if railway communication with
Iran is opened with a potential of big volume cargo shipment, this
business will be also beneficial for Georgia', - he said and added
that it is necessary to restore about 80 km of railway in Abkhazia
and this requires $250-300 mln.
