MOSCOW, October 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russia hopes for better relations with Georgia, Russia’s Federation Council speaker Valentina Matviyenko told reporters on Tuesday.
“Russia has always said we are interested in the improvement of relations with the fraternal Georgian people. And we very much hope that changes that are underway in Georgia will exert a positive effect on the improvement of our relations,” she said.
Matviyenko underlined that “if Georgia has adequate authorities it is always possible to find solution to the points at issue and build mutually advantageous partnership relations – without tensions and any radical decisions.”
