Abashidze: Tbilisi advocates continuation of talks within Prague format
Georgia’s Special Envoy to Russia Zurab Abashidze said that Tbilisi advocates the continuation of dialogue with Moscow within the Prague format.
"Of course, I support the Prague format," he noted.
The continuation of the talks came under question after the resignation of former Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gregory Karasin earlier this year, who had represented Russia in the talks since 2013.
Talks on trade, economic and humanitarian relations between Georgia and Russia had been held twice a year in Prague, with the involvement of Karasin and Georgia’s Special Envoy to Russia Zurab Abashidze.
The most recent meeting between Karasin and Abashidze took place in June 2019, when Abashidze said that Georgia has exported $1.5 billion worth of products to Russia since 2013.
