TBILISI, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. A meeting between Russian and Georgian diplomats has been postponed to March 14, Georgia’s special envoy Zurab Abashidze said on Friday.
Earlier, an agreement was reached to meet in Prague on March 4-5, Abashidze said.
Russia and Georgia severed diplomatic relations after Moscow recognized de-facto independent Georgian republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states following a brief military conflict.
Georgia’s new government, elected in the October 1 polls, said normalizing relations with Russia was among its top priorities.
The first meeting between Russian and Georgian envoys on bilateral relations was held in Geneva on December 14. The sides agreed to hold such meetings once in two months.
A number of high-level informal contacts between Russia and Georgia have been held in the past months, including a brief meeting between Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his Georgian counterpart Bidzina Ivanishvili during a forum in Davos, a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II who paid a rare six-day visit to Moscow in January and a meeting of Russian and Georgian members of parliament at a PACE session in Strasbourg.
