MOSCOW, February 4 (Itar-Tass) – The first round of the Russian-Georgian talks on the resumption of exports of Georgian wine and Borjomi mineral water to Russia has ended successfully, Gennady Onishchenko, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, the Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare, told a briefing on Monday.
“The first, essential, round of the talks is over,” he said.
“Next week some three groups of Russian experts will visit the plants in Georgia that have already supplied the necessary documents,” Onishchenko said.
“Russia and Georgia have agreed to resume commercial relations,” said Levan Davitashvili, the head of the Georgian delegation.
He expressed certainty that the Georgian wines would be back on the Russian market before spring was over.
“I think this may happen even earlier, but we will not forestall events,” Onishchenko said.
Meanwhile Georgia’s export of wine materials will not yet be permitted. “We will not permit this, and Georgia will not encourage this,” Onishchenko said.
But then the matter can be decided later. “The market will stabilize, and we will consider this matter,” the head of Rospotrebnadzor said.
