TBILISI, February 14 (Itar-Tass) – Zurab Abashidze, the Georgian prime minister’s special representative for relations with Russia, told Itar-Tass on Thursday that the sides would set and announce the venue of his second meeting with Grigory Karasin, the deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, next week.
“The meeting will take place on March 1 in one of the European countries but not Switzerland. The sides will discuss restoration and development of trade, economic and cultural ties between the two countries,” Abashidze clarified. He added that Georgian-Russian relations had recently seen some positive impulses and called for developing them step by step.
Abashidze’s first meeting with Karasin took place in the outskirts of Geneva on December 14, 2012. That was the first direct dialogue (without intermediaries) between officials of the two countries since 2008.
