MOSCOW, November 11 (Itar-Tass) — The Russia-Georgia agreements on the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in no way call into question the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, RF presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on Friday.
According to him, the agreement on the establishment of a company that will conduct monitoring in the territory of the two new states, signed between Georgia and Russia “we interpret as in no way affecting the recognition of these two states.” “The independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia is not questioned in any way,” Dvorkovich said. “It is our opinion,” he added.
Dvorkovich said that the above company will be private, and it would be funded by Russia and Georgia, and the money will be coming to a trust fund from which the money will be transferred to a third country - Switzerland.
