BRUSSELS, February 4. /ITAR-TASS/. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said he was pleased with the signs Russia and Georgia were improving diplomatic relations.

The European Union welcomes the continuing diplomatic contacts between Georgia and Russia as an important contribution to assuring stability and security for the region, he said after a meeting with Georgian Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili in Brussels on Tuesday.

Garibashvili said at the Munich Security Conference that his country had taken constructive steps towards a rapprochement with Russia. As far as prospects for the development of bilateral relations are concerned, he said Russia had started to gradually open its market to Georgian goods.

“We should make Russia certain that our closeness to the European Union poses no threat to Russia,” Garibashvili added. “A stable and predictable Georgia is in Russia’s interests, too,” he concluded.
