Government of the Republic of Armenia addressed the Government of Georgia with the requestto open a ferry crossing with Russia due to the heavy workload at the Upper Lars checkpoint, the MARITIME TRANSPORT AGENCY of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia reports.

The "Zemo Larsi" checkpoint between Armenia and Russia is the only linking land point.  All cargoes from Armenia to Russia and back are transported through it.

Armenia says that ferry crossing from Russia to Georgia will start working in a few days

As the agency points out, due to the congestion, the processing of transit cargo on the "Zemo Larsi" is often delayed for several weeks.

"Proceeding from the mentioned problems, the Government of the Republic of Armenia addressed the Government of Georgia with the request to consider the sea transport as an alternative to the Lars border crossing, which would handle the transit cargo of Armenia in terms of food and perishable products, as well as the products of prime necessity",  reported department.

The Republic of Armenia, which has no access to the sea, traditionally uses Georgian ports and conducts international trade. Here, the agency also talks about the country's obligations under the international Convention on Transit Trade of Landlocked States.

The Armenian authorities have been talking for several months about the opening of a ferry crossing connecting the Georgian Black Sea port of Poti with the Russian port of Kavkaz in the Sea of Azov.

On the eve of the Minister of Economy of Armenia Vahan Kerobyan said that the ferry will start running "in a few days." At the same time, he pointed out that the launch of the sea line is delayed due to the difficulties associated with the war in Ukraine.
