Pipeline Construction Still an Issue for Armenia’s in Region

AKHALKALAK (A-INFO)–The Armenian population living along the construction route of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipe-line (Tsalka–Borjomi–and Akhaltskha)–has consistently opposed the project–and continue to voice their objections. Especially outraged are those living in the Tapatsghur village of the Borjomi province–who were promised financial payment for lands taken up by the project–but have not yet been compensated.

In discussing security issues tied to the pipeline–Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili recently announced during a visit to Azerbaijan that the Armenian population living along the pipeline’s construction route do not oppose the project.
