Representatives of Tbilisi and Moscow have met in Switzerland. At the meeting the two parties have agreed to discuss the issues related to trade, humanitarian and cultural relations and restoration of regular flights between Georgia and Russia, the BBC reported.


According to the Georgian Special Representative of Georgian Prime Minister for Relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze, dialogue between Tbilisi and Moscow will continue on a regular basis. He stated this after the meeting with the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin.

"It was the first such contact between the officials of Georgia and the Russian Federation, which has taken place on the direct instructions of the Prime Minister of Georgia and the Russian President", Abashidze said.

Recall, previously Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze stated that the meeting would have "technical" nature. "The very fact of the meeting is positive, although we do not expect concrete results", she said.

Earlier, the new Georgian authorities stated that the restoration of relations with Russia on a diplomatic level was impossible until the "de-occupation of Georgia".
