A similar statement was made a day before by Margvelashvili’s foreign affairs adviser Vano Machavariani, who said “Georgian state delegation is not coming to the Sochi Olympics in any form, and the president’s position on this issue is quite clear”.
“At Sochi Olympics, Georgia will be represented only by its sport delegation — athletes and heads of the National Olympic Committee,” he said.
Peskov mentioned the possibility of a meeting between the two leaders on February 6 in reply to a question from Itar-Tass in Sochi.
