Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Alasania’s visit to Armenia was
important in respect of discussing issues of military cooperation
and military transit. But besides it, I think, as an influential
representative of the new Georgian authorities, Alasania also
discussed with the Armenian side other regional issues, including the
possibility of restoring the Abkhazian railway, political scientist,
Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute Sergey Minasyan told a
news conference in Yerevan when commenting on the Georgian Defense
Minister’s recent visit to Armenia.

According to the expert, it is possible that Armenian President Serzh
Sargsyan, Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Abkhazian leadership
will have bilateral or trilateral meetings and consultations today
in Moscow.

Sergey Minasyan noted that it is little probable that the Abkhazian
sector of the railway will be restored but added that today “there
is a unique situation, with the Georgian side having, to some extent,
changed its position on this issue and being more ready to solve it.”
