TBILISI, November 22 (Itar-Tass) — Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said his visit to Russia “is impossible on this stage”.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Ivanishvili said, “I can’t visit Russia for simple reasons: it has the embassies in Sukhum and Tskhinval. I may meet with Russian representatives out of Russia – in Europe or in other place. But unfortunately, we’ve not discussed this opportunity yet.”
He regretted that the first Georgian-Russian meeting, even with the participation of the prime minister’s special envoy for relations with Russia, Zurab Abashidze, had failed. “I can’t go to Russia under such conditions. But it is early to talk about our meeting in other place,” the Georgian prime minister said.
Ivanishvili said he is hopeful that Russia “will study the situation and take a corresponding step towards Georgia’s worthy deed to appoint the prime minister’s special envoy for the settlement of relations with Russia”.
