His meetings with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin “had an agenda of practical issues of trade and economic cooperation, transport, humanitarian and other issues”, Abashidze said. On Wednesday, this would be discussed in the context of Georgia’s association with the EU, the diplomat added.
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.
