TBILISI, November 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Georgian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that the signing of a bilateral agreement with Russia, which paves its way to WTO membership, was “a major achievement”.
In its statement made public on Thursday, the Foreign Ministry expressed hope that the signing of the document “will give Russia a possibility to settle other difficulties existing in Georgian-Russian relations on principles of international law”.
It also hopes that “Russia will join the talks aimed at the search for a mutually acceptable way out of the situation that has developed in relations between the two states”.
On Wednesday, Georgia and Russia signed in Geneva a package of documents that concern Russia’s WTO accession. In particular, they envisage “customs administration and monitoring trade of turnover on the internationally recognized state border between the two countries”. A third, neutral party will be responsible for the monitoring.
