AKHALKALAK (Armenpress)–After visiting Georgia’s mostly Armenian populated region of Javakhk–a Georgian delegation has allocated approximately one million dollars for the reconstruction of roads in the area.
A Georgian Infrastructure and Development ministry delegation headed by Tamara Sulukhian made the decision after its visit to Javakhk on April 30.
Deputy Minister Genati Muratian–said the funds will cover reconstruction of roads in Jdanovka (on the Armenia-Georgia border)–Ninotcminda–Aspinza-Akhalkalak–Kartsakh-Akhalkalak–Ninotsminda-Akhalkalak–as well city streets in Ninotsminda and Akhalkalak.
Muratian noted that massive reconstruction efforts are expected in the future for roads in Kartsakh-Akhalkalak and Tsalka-Ninotsminda. Kartsakh-Akhalkalak is being targeted because of plans to establish a new customs service in Kartsakh on the Turkish-Georgian border–while Tsalka-Ninotsminda will shorten the route between Tbilisi-Javakhk–and the Tbilisi-Turkish border.
