"As soon as Georgia gets a new leader we will have every opportunity to restore ties," he said in the Stanford University, at a meeting with representatives of business, scientific and public circles.
According to the Russian leader, now there're two approaches to Abkhazia and South Ossetia: as to territories of Georgia and as to subjects of international law, and highlighted Russia sticks to the latter.
He added in August 2008 Russia was defending its citizens and its interests.
"Regrettably, it led to sad consequences, but I wish our relations with Georgia are back to normal," he said.
"Furthermore, I'm absolutely sure that this would happen. The two neighbors just cannot afford to carry on endless polemics and squabbles. We lived together for centuries, and we always had very good relations," Medvedev said.
Russia recognized the independency of South Ossetia, as well as Abkhazia, on August 26th 2008. On August 8th 2008 Georgian troops entered Tskhinval, the South Ossetian capital, the 5-day August war ensued. Over 200 civilians and peacemakers were killed. Russia drew its troops in the conflict zone and conducted a "peace enforcement" operation.
