TBILISI, December 19. /TASS/. Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili will be prepared for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin only for discussing the key issues in bilateral relations, Georgian Security Council Secretary Irina Imerlishvili said on Friday.
On the list of such issues, she said, was the situation in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, as well as the November 24 agreement between Russia and Abkhazia on alliance and strategic partnership.
“For other themes there exists the Geneva format, where Georgian and Russian negotiators are considering other political issues,” Imerlishvili said.
At the annual news conference in Moscow on December 18 Putin said that Russia was prepared to welcome Georgia’s president or prime minister in Moscow.
“If the Georgian leadership finds that possible, we will be glad to see any representative of the Georgian leadership, including the president and the prime minister in Moscow,” he said.
