Movsumov noted that the first party of gold reserves in the volume of 1 ton would be brought to Baku and given to Central Bank to save. The sides have finished the talks on saving of gold in CBA: “CB has sufficient opportunities to save the gold”.
Along with this Movsumov noted that problems occurred in relation with bringing of gold to Azerbaijan. The air companies have limited transportation opportunities. No air company takes more than 1 ton of gold to its deck.
SOFAR has started to purchase gold since February 1, 2012. 25 bars of gold or 10,000 ounces of gold are purchased per week and 30 tonnes of gold will be purchased within next two years.
