Earlier on Thursday Georgia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kapanadze, representing Georgia's delegation at the Georgian-Russian negotiations on the accession of Russia to the WTO said that Georgia had accepted a new proposal from the Swiss mediator, which is intended to pave the way for Russian membership of the WTO. He said the proposal provided for the electronic exchange of data and the international monitoring of trade between Georgia and Russia across the Abkhaz and South Ossetian sections of the state border.
