MOSCOW, August 25 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow lauds the Georgian government’s strive for improving good-neighbourly relations with Abkhazia and Ossetia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Abkhazian Television and Radio Company ahead of the 5th anniversary of the recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

“I’m sure that all of us, primarily Abkhazs, Ossets and Georgians, seek to improve good-neighbourly relations. We praise the Georgian government’s strive for improving relations,” Lavrov said.

“If we take into account the interests of ordinary people and help them improve relations, all geopolitical prejudices can be taken aside. We should think about people and not about geopolitical ambitions,” the Russian minister said.

“Much has been done and it is necessary to do much more. We’ve felt the Abkhazian friends ready for this,” he added.

On August 25, 2008 the State Duma, lower house of Russia’s parliament, approved an address to the Russian president to recognise South Ossetia and Abkhazia. On August 26, 2008 Dmitry Medvedev signed decrees on the recognition of the independence of both republics.
