In the opinion of Teymuraz Lomsadze, Adviser on Issues of Repatriation of Meskhetians of the Georgian State Minister on Issues of Conflict Settlement, the most part of the territories where the Meskhetian Turks lived have become ruined and their restoration will require large exenditures. The State Minister's Adviser mentioned that besides turning into ruins, these territories are not rich in land, either, and the Turks should be resettled in more convenient territories.

According to the A-Info agency, Georgians from different Georgian regions were resettled in the most part of the Meskhetians' territories and the lands of the ruined territories were also given to them. By the way, according to unofficial data, Tsalka and Ninotsminda are considered as probable regions for resettlement of Meskhetians as part of the houses of Greeks and Russians who have left these regions are vacant.
