"We are still at the stage of studying the issue, and the decision will be taken on the command principle, headed by the prime minister", Maya Panjikidze said.
Meanwhile, according to the NRegion, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov stated his department was ready to negotiate with the new Georgian authorities. After the victory of the coalition "Georgian Dream" of billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili in the parliamentary election in Georgia transport links between Russia and Georgia will improve, Moscow believes. "They have to make a proposal, and we are ready to consider it and start negotiations", Maxim Sokolov said.
Transport links between Russia and Georgia were, in fact, terminated after the war in 2008 simultaneously with the severance of diplomatic relations.
