Russia: Georgia must make first step to improve relations

2012-12-18 12:19

According to the Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, Georgian leadership must take the first step in order to improve relations with Russia.


"We are ready to a dialogue, cooperation, but we should focus not only on the statements, but also on the actual steps of the Georgian leadership, which they should do first. Unfortunately, they still do not say that they won't use force against Abkhazia and South Ossetia - independent states, recognized by Russia", Patrushev said in an interview to the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.

According to him, now in Georgia there remains a difficult political situation and, in addition, a great impact of the U.S. and NATO. "One can see the contradictions between the Prime Minister Ivanishvili and President Saakashvili. They must solve internal problems, to determine who of them is assigned to which role. One of them says that he is interested in the restoration of relations with Russia, the other says opposite things", said Patrushev.

He added that "our peoples are historically close; they have long lived in one state and actively cooperated". "The Georgian leadership started the war against Abkhazia and South Ossetia, where many Russian citizens live, which creates serious interstate conflicts", he said.

Recall, the 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
