MOSCOW, February 4 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s consumer rights watchdog and the Georgian delegation will meet in Moscow on Monday to discuss resumption of exports of Georgian wines and mineral water to the Russian market.
Georgian wines may return to the Russian market, if this process is not politicized, Onishchenko said earlier.
“If this theme is not politicized, I see no special problems,” he said. “We will discuss this issue, we have what to discuss from 2006 (in March 2006 Russia imposed a ban on the import of Georgian wines – Itar-Tass).”
Onishchenko believes that of late “the Georgian winemaking industry has taken a big step forward.”
After the visit of the Georgian delegation to Moscow Russian specialists will visit Georgia to study the situation onsite, he said.
“Then we will gradually begin to let their products to our market,” he said.
