Alasania: Russia’s speech in WTO is beneficial for Georgia

15417.jpegOne of the leaders of the Georgian opposition Irakly Alasania stated that Russia's entrance in the World Trade Organization will be useful for Georgia.


As reported by VZGLYAD, Alasania underlined that the official Tbilisi's agreement for Russia's entrance in WTO will help Georgian businessmen return to the Russian market.

He also paid attention to the fact that Moscow and Tbilisi should find a compromise on the possible presence of the members of international organizations and the third country who could speak on Georgia's behalf at the disputable border points.

The Georgian party underlined many times that Russia cannot become member of the World Trade Organization until it settles all the difficulties with Tbilisi.

"Russia won't enter in WTO at the expense of Georgia's interests or in violation of this organization's bylaws", - head of the Georgian MFA Grigol Vashadze underlined.

Besides, he remarked that the probable resumption of diplomatic relationship between Moscow and Tbilisi is possible only with the "de-occupation of the Georgian territories".

One of the main Tbilisi's demands is the establishment of control over the border checkpoints at the Abkhaz-South Ossetian frontier. 

Earlier, Deputy of the Georgian Parliament Petre Mamradze had voiced an opinion that Russia's entrance in WTO will help control Moscow's relationship with Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Mamradze is sure that there will be no abrupt change in the two republics' status even if Russia enters in WTO without Georgia's control being established over the customs checkpoints in Psou and near Roksky tunnel.

"There will be no essential changes: Russia is conducting uncontrolled trade with Abkhazia and South Ossetia and brings all possible goods in their territories, including military rockets. Thus, the situation is not going to change legally or actually", - Mamradze added.
