Abashidze sums up his Russia-Georgia talks with Karasin
Georgian Prime Minister's Special Envoy for the relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze said the implementation of the 2011 Georgian-Russian agreement regarding the customs monitoring of cargo shipments across the common border was the main topic of his talks with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin in Prague.
"The primary goal and task consists in doing everything in line with the 2011 agreement and so there would be no any violations and abuses from this point of view," Interfax cited the Georgian prime minister's special envoy as saying.
Russia holds almost the same stance, he said. "So, the work should be continued, and, as I know, experts will hold another meeting soon," he noted.
The diplomat admitted that he had no illusions that any great breakthroughs, any tangible progress or advancement will take place at meetings. "This was one of regular meetings in the Prague format, at which we were trying to meet the interests and settle the problems of our companies, individuals or the business community," the Georgian prime minister's special envoy said.
