2013-02-07 13:12

According to the U.S. State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary Eric Rubin, normalization of relations with Russia is in the interest of Georgia, the News-Georgia reported.


"The establishment of relations with Russia is in the interests of Georgia, this process is positive, however, it takes time. We have noticed some improvement in relations between the two countries, in particular, in the framework of Russia's accession to the WTO last year they have achieved an agreement, under which trade relations with Georgia should be settled", said Rubin.

"We understand that Georgia faces acute problems, including issues with its territorial integrity and sovereignty, we will do everything to make sure that other countries understand the UN's rationale behind its position on Georgian borders. We also call for an opportunity for Georgia to follow a path to European integration", Rubin said.

At the same time, commenting on the statement of the U.S. Vice President Joe Biden made ​​at the Munich Security Conference, Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili stated that Washington rigorously supported the territorial integrity of Georgia.

Biden said in his speech that the United States did not agree with Moscow on all issues and cited the occupied territories of Georgia as an example. According to him, the United States will not recognize Abkhazia and so-called South Ossetia as independent states and are not going to recognize them in the future, the RIA Novosti reported.
