Georgia is not selling main North – South gas pipeline
By Messenger Staff
Thursday, November 18The Georgian government does not plan to sell its main gas pipeline connecting Russia with Armenia via Georgia. The press service of Georgian PM spoke about this on November 16, stating that although many countries might be interested in buying this asset, it does not mean that Georgia will be selling it.
SOCAR president Rovnag Abdulaev stated on November 13 that his company is ready to either buy or manage the pipeline. It is worth remembering that in July this year, the Georgian parliament excluded this pipeline from the list of strategic projects, therefore it could have been privitised and sold. The possible sale of the object created concern in Armenia, which of course did not want Azerbaijan to become the owner of this strategically important pipeline.
