Kazbegi Checkpoint on the Georgian-Russian border will operate in limited emergency regime, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said following his visit to the Daryal Gorge on August 30. 

According to News Georgia, Garibashvili said that Kazbegi Checkpoint was going to resume its work on August 30, but a day before another slight landslide occurred and put off the opening of the checkpoint for a few hours.     

"The checkpoint will operate in the limited emergency regime until the aftermath of the disaster is liquidated", said Garibashvili.  

"We involved scientists and experts, as well as representatives of various ministries. We managed to do a lot of work over the past 10 days. I want to express my gratitude to the emergency headquarters and to everyone who worked to remove the consequences of the disaster", he said. 

Garibashvili added that the damage caused by the landslide in Daryal Gorge is "very serious and will make up millions. The Finance Ministry of Georgia will shortly give the precise figure", he said.   

To note, on August 30 the Armenian Foreign Ministry reported with reference to the Consulate General in Rostov-on-Don that the road linking Georgia to Russia resumed its work.    

To recall, the August 20 landslide in Daryal Gorge blocked the Georgian Military Road linking Georgia to Russia. The landslide damaged the infrastructure of Kazbegi Checkpoint and Daryal Hydropower Plant, as well as the main gas pipeline supplying the Russian gas to Armenia via Georgia.
