A week earlier, Abashidze said that “the complicated process of normalizing Georgia-Russia relations should not be artificially accelerated” and a true breakthrough was not to be expected soon.
The diplomats first met near Geneva in December of 2012; four similar meetings took place in Prague last year; the latest meeting was held in Prague in April. This is the first direct dialogue between the two countries’ official representatives after 2008.
