TBILISI, February 8. /TASS/. Georgia's special envoy to Russia, Zurab Abashidze, told reporters on Monday he will meet with his Russian counterpart Grigory Karasin in mid-March in Prague.
Since December 2012, Georgia and Russia have held dialogue in the Abashidze-Karasin format, the first direct dialogue between the two countries after 2008. Abashidze’s first meeting with Karasin, who is the state secretary and deputy foreign minister, took place in December 2012 in a Geneva suburb.
In 2013-2015, ten meetings took place in Prague, which discussed cooperation in trade, economy, transport, culture and the humanitarian sphere.
In the recent months, a number of Russian and Georgian politicians have underlined the need to hold meetings of the two countries’ official representatives and meetings at a higher level to discuss the current problems.
Moscow recognized as independent two Georgian breakaway republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which resulted in the cutoff of Russia-Georgia diplomatic ties. The recognition followed Georgia's attack on South Ossetia that entailed Russia's peacemaking operation in August 2008.
