TBILISI, May 15. /TASS/. Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said a certain environment is needed for making his meeting with the Russian President possible.
"There has to be a ripe environment and certain decisions made for a direct dialogue with the Russian Federation," Kvirikashvili said in an interview with Imedi TV on Sunday, adding that he would be happy to see "some certain willingness for such a direct dialogue with Georgia from Russia’s side."
In November 2012, Georgia’s then the Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili established an office of prime minister’s special envoy for relations with Russia and appointed diplomat Zurab Abarshidze, Georgia’s former ambassador to Russia in 2000-2004, to that post. On December 14, 2012, Abashidze’s first meeting with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin took place in a Geneva suburb. It resumed direct dialogue between the two countries' officials suspended after the 2008 developments. The regular meetings are focused on cooperation in trade, economy, transport and culture. Georgia’s and Russia’s top officials have repeatedly stressed the importance of a dialogue in the Abashidze-Karasin format.
