The Georgian Maritime Transport Agency on Tuesday rejected the statement of Yury Vladimirov, the General Director of the Sochi seaport, on alleged negotiations regarding the commencement of maritime transportation of passengers between Georgia and Russia, adding there has been no sea transport between the countries.

The Russian side has not applied to Georgia on the matter and therefore, it is unknown to the Agency what the Sochi Port Administration meant, the state body said.

The Agency responded to Vladimirov’s statement, telling the Russian state news agency Tass on Tuesday, allegedly the negotiations on the establishment of maritime transportation in the Black Sea were underway between the de-facto leadership of Russian-occupied Georgia’s region of Abkhazia and Georgia and planned to launch sea transportation from summer.
