2013-02-15 12:25

According to the chairman of the Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexei Pushkov, the meeting of the heads of delegations of Russia and Georgia in Strasbourg was held on the initiative of the Georgian side. He told that reporters on Friday, February 15, the RIA Novosti reported.


Commenting on the statement by his Georgian counterpart Tedo Japaridze that there was not any agreement on the establishment of an informal working group of the parliaments of Russia and Georgia, Pushkov said that during the meeting they spoke about a narrow informal meeting of Russian and Georgian parliamentarians at the April session of PACE.

"How to call it - this is another question. If the Georgian side prefers a different format, then we are ready to consider it. A situation should ripen for such a meeting. We do not hurry. You cannot make good wine from unripe grapes", added Pushkov.

As recalled by the RBC, earlier the chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations of Georgia Tedo Japaridze refuted the information that the members of parliament of Georgia and Russia will create an informal working group on improving relations between the two countries in April.

Tedo Dzhaparidze confirms that he met with Pushkov at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg; however, they did not agree to establish an informal Georgian-Russian group.
