In the course of his forthcoming visit to Baku, Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze will not discuss purchase of North-South section of the Georgian pipeline by Azerbaijani state oil company (SOCAR).
“At the moment the issue is not on the agenda. It is not discussed at a state level,” Deputy FM Nino Kalandadze said at today’s briefing.
Official statement on intention to purchase gas pipeline section was made by SOCAR president Rovnag Abdullayev.
According to him, pipeline can be used to accelerate implementation of Interconnector Azerbaijan-Georgia-Romania (AGRI) project providing for supply of liquefied gas via Georgia and the Black Sea to Romania.
As NEWS.am reported earlier, under decision of the Georgian leadership, section of a pipeline passing through Georgia and connecting Russia with Armenia, was excluded from the privatization list.
