2013-04-30 15:45

Special Representative of the Prime Minister of Georgia Zurab Abashidze stated that at a regular meeting with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin they intend to discuss visa and transport facilitation, the News-Georgia reported.


"We are waiting for a response from Russia on what they think about the simplification of the visa regime for certain categories of citizens of Georgia," said Abashidze.

He added that "the parties are going to settle the existing transportation barriers." "In particular, I am referring to the checkpoint "Kazbegi - Zemo Larsi" which is to work around the clock starting from June 1," Zurab Abashidze said.

Earlier today we reported that according to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia Maya Pandzhikidze, negotiations on the restoration of diplomatic relations with Russia do not take place since 20% of the Georgian territories are occupied by Russia, and Russia has recognized them as independent states.

"As long as 20% of the Georgian territories are occupied by Russia, the restoration of diplomatic relations is excluded. The second reason is that the inalienable territory of Georgia was recognized by Russia as independent states, and as long as Russia doesn't abolish the recognition and de-occupy Georgia, the establishment of diplomatic relations with the state-occupier is impossible," said Pandzhikidze.
