TBILISI, December 10 (Itar-Tass) — A dialogue between Georgia and Russia can be launched “without any preliminary conditions,” Georgian prime minister’s special envoy for the settlement of relations with Russia, Zurab Abashidze, said on Monday.
“Georgia puts forth no preliminary conditions for the start of a dialogue with the Russian Federation, and I believe there will be no preconditions put forth by Russia,” he said. Abashidze also said he was likely to meet with a representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry in Switzerland.
In reply to the query “Who exactly will you meet with?” he said “This will become clear within the next few days, most likely it will be a meeting with State Secretary of the Russian Foreign Ministry and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin”.
“It will be an informal one-on-one meeting of an organizational-technical nature,” he stressed.
“First of all it is necessary to discuss how to maintain a dialogue. Georgia and Russia have their own view of that issue,” he added. According to Abashidze, “Georgia is ready for a substantial and constructive dialogue with the Russian Federation”.
