At the talks between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and President of Switzerland Micheline Calmy-Rey, which are scheduled for July 13 in Kolomna, Moscow region, the sides will discuss the issues of representation of Russian interests in Georgia and, accordingly, Georgian - in Russia.
"Georgia-News" reported about this referring to the Kremlin press service.
"An important part of the upcoming talks, as expected, wil become discussion of cooperation with Switzerland on the issues of representation of Russian interests in Georgia and Georgian in Russia after the break of official diplomatic relations of Tbilisi with our country in 2008 ... Thanks to the "good offices" of Switzerland we have the opportunity to solve urgent consular and humanitarian problems of our fellow countrymen and a large Georgian diaspora in Russia" - said the press service of Russian President.
Diplomatic relations between Russia and Georgia were severed after the 2008 war and Moscow's recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia in 2008. Formal relations between the two countries have been carrying out under the mediation of the Swiss diplomats through the relevant sections of interest at the Swiss Embassy in Tbilisi and Moscow.
