Georgia sets conditions for restoring diplomatic ties with Russia2009-07-08 18:08
Georgia is ready to restore diplomatic relations with Russia provided Moscow leaves only one diplomatic representation in the country.
This is what Temur Yakobashvili, State Minister for Reintegration told journalists today, Trend reports.
According to him today Russia has three embassies in Georgia implying Russia's embassies that were opened in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
"If this number is reduced to just one there will be no obstacles to start negotiations", - the minister remarked.
Yakobashvili also emphasized that when one state did not recognize territorial integrity of another state, it was pointless to speak about diplomacy. "They might as well open their embassies in Gldani and Ortachala", - he stated.
Russia acknowledged Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's independence last August after Georgia's military aggression against South Ossetia.
Russia's Embassy in South Ossetia started operating in February, and in Abkhazia - in May.
