Georgia's foreign minister said Wednesday he hoped a mooted meeting between Georgian and Russian presidents in Moscow would be constructive
Georgia's foreign minister said Wednesday he hoped a mooted meeting between Georgian and Russian presidents in Moscow would be constructive. Georgia is seeking the meeting on the weekend on the sidelines of an informal summit of leaders from the Commonwealth of Independent States. Gela Bezhuashvili said the central theme of a meeting between Mikheil Saakashvili and Vladimir Putin would be regional conflicts in Georgia and Russia's role in resolving them. "The only fundamental issue at this meeting will be preservation of Georgia's integrity, and we are ready for any compromise, any model here. So we are bringing specific proposals to Moscow to restart the peace process," he said. Georgia's parliament adopted Tuesday a resolution on peacekeeping operations in conflict areas in Georgia. Parliament recommended that the government start withdrawing of the Russian contingent from Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and start work to change the peacekeeping format to international. Saakashvili linked the final resolution of the Russian peacekeepers' issue with the results of the meeting with Putin. "We will make the final decision after I go to Moscow to meet with Russia's president. We are now coordinating the parameters of this meeting," Saakashvili said. Russia is yet to confirm officially that the meeting will take place
