TBILISI, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia will soon begin work on settling problems in relations with Russia, but this will be not an easy process, said Maya Pandzhikidze, a candidate for the post of Foreign Minister from the Georgian Dream coalition.
The establishment of “some relations with Russia is obligatory, but it may take years to resolve the existing problems,” she said.
“It is necessary to find the spheres of common interests for the two countries and start working in these directions,” she said.
“We have a concrete idea of how to build relations with Russia, but it is still early to speak about concrete plans,” Pandzhikidze said.
“Without normalization of relations with Russia it is impossible to resolve the issue of restoring Georgia’s territorial integrity,” the diplomat said. “At the same time everybody should realize that Georgia will never come to a compromise damaging its territorial integrity.”
Pandzhikidze said her visit to Russia “is not planned yet.”
She emphasized that “the United States remains Georgia’s main strategic partner.”
