TBILISI, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Georgian prime minister’s special envoy for improving relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze said on Tuesday his dialogue with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin remained timely.
“Georgia has no diplomatic relations with Russia and the only opportunity to meet, consider the existing problems and try to resolve them wherever possible is the format of bilateral dialogue and extremely important Geneva consultations,” he told reporters. “The format of Abashidze-Karasin dialogue has not lost its topicality. I think at this stage these negotiations are timely.”
Georgia and Russia launched dialogue in such a format on December 14, 2012. The first meeting took place in Geneva, other four meetings were hosted by Prague in March, June, September and November 2013.
Their next meeting should have taken place in the Czech Republic’s capital on March 14, 2014, but was postponed by mutual agreement.
“We support further dialogue in this format,” Abashidze said.
