MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes a dialogue with Georgia’s new leaders is realistic.
“This is not the most simple road, but Russia has always said we are ready for a dialogue with Georgia’s new leaders, but, of course, minding the present geopolitical realities and decisions on recognising of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which Russia made,” he said in an interview with the Kommersant.
“The present prime minister (of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili) – is another generation of politicians, let us follow his realistic deeds,” Medvedev said. “We are receiving signals from there that it would be good to establish contacts, not at the diplomatic level yet, though, I’d like to remind, it was Georgia, not Russia, who broke the diplomatic relations; we shall consider attentively signals of the kind.”
“I do not see anything negative in restoring humanitarian cooperation, the planes are operating, and, thank God, personal contacts continue, cultural relations are in place, trade and economic relations may be restored, too.”
“The only person, with who I would not sit at one table, is Michael Saakashvili,” Medvedev said. “He unleashed the war, committed a crime, first of all against the people of Georgia, against other people, where he is responsible for deaths.”
