TBILISI, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Georgia must start a full-scale dialogue with Russia on all problems, not just a dialogue on trade and economic affairs,” ex-parliamentary speaker Nino Burdzhanadze, leader of the Democratic Movement - United Georgia party and member of the leadership of the People’s Assembly of Georgia socio-political forum, said on Tuesday.
She welcomed the moves of the new Georgian leadership “towards restoring trade and economic relations and cooperation in the cultural and humanitarian areas,” but she believes that this is not enough, that “a full-scale direct Georgian-Russian dialogue on all problems is needed for normalization of relations with Russia.”
“If Georgia shows political will, it is quite possible to establish relations with Russia with consideration for the interests of the two countries,” said Burdzhanadze who is one of the officially registered candidates for the Georgian presidential election due on October 27.
