Georgian Premier Says Russia-Armenia Railway Link a Possibility

Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said his country and neighboring Armenia are ready to restore a railway link to Russia through Georgia.

“Georgia, in its turn, expresses willingness to do it, but there is Russia as well,” Ivanishvili told reporters in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, today, according to a recorded broadcast of the news conference on Rustavi-2 television.

Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan also backed the link, according to a transcript of the news conference provided by his office. Ivanishvili, on a one-day trip to Armenia, also met President Serzh Sargsyan.
