BRUSSELS, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Georgia is seeking to improve the relations with Russia, Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said on Monday. Ivanishvili is currently on his first official foreign visit in Brussels.
“We are seeking to improve the relations with Russia. We hope that the Russian government is taking adequate measures for this purpose. The current situation in bilateral relations is unprofitable for Russia and Georgia,” he said.
Ivanishvili said at a meeting with President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso that Georgia continues to adhere to the integration in European structures. He also voiced hope that the sides will finalize the drafting of an association agreement by a summit of the European Union’s Eastern Partnership program in Vilnius in 2013.
For his part, Barroso confirmed the consistent EU support to Georgian territorial integrity and the democratic reforms in that country. He also supported the intentions of the Georgian prime minister to improve the relations with Russia.
