2009-03-19 17:41

Russia doesn't intend to renounce recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia - even for dialog with Russia, stated Andrey Nesterenko, the Foreign Ministry of Russia spokesman, commenting upon the statement of the Speaker of the Georgian Parliament, who previously noted that his country is ready for direct dialog with south Ossetia and Abkhazia but only with consideration of the territorial integrity of Georgia.   


"It is a new element in the approach, but it cannot be made conditional on the territorial integrity. There is no way back. Abkhazia and South Ossetia are recognized by Russia as independent and sovereign states, they must be spoken with as equals. Other approaches are inadmissible", Nesterenko said - RIA Novosti.  

On March 17th the Speaker said that Georgian authorities would like to establish good-neighbourly relations with Russia, but not at the cost of the two aforesaid regions. Bakradze said the main question is the price of improvement of relations with Russia. According to the Speaker, the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia cannot be the price to pay.
