TBILISI, January 12. /TASS/. Economic relations between Georgia and Russia have improved, Georgian Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili said on Monday.
“There is no progress in the political sphere,” he said.
“Georgia seeks to have normal relations with Russia. To this end, it has taken constructive steps in this direction in the last two years,” Garibashvili said at a news briefing with his Estonian counterpart Taavi Roivas.
At the same time, he said, “Normal relations with Russia should not and cannot be established without infringing upon sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.”
On December 26, Garibashvili said he was ready to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“This meeting should be planned well to yield results,” Garibashvili said.
“Till now I believe that it is early to say when and in what format the meeting is held,” he said.
The new version of the Georgian Constitution, which was adopted in 2010 and came into effect in November 2013, curbed presidential powers in favour of the premiership.
On December 18, Putin said Russia would be glad to accept the Georgian president and the prime minister.
“If the Georgian leadership thinks it possible, we’ll be glad to accept any representative of the Georgian leadership. We’ll be happy to see the president and the premier in Moscow,” Putin said.
