Karasin and Abashidze to meet in Prague again

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Special Representative of the Georgian Prime Minister for Relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze will meet in Prague today.

Yesterday Karasin said that during the talks, the sides will primarily discuss trade, humanitarian contacts and transport issues, TASS reported.

The talks will be also attended by representatives of foreign ministries, ministries of economy and transport of Russia and Georgia.

On December 14, 2012, Abashidze’s first meeting with Karasin took place in a Geneva suburb, a breakthrough after the cutoff of Russia-Georgia diplomatic ties in 2008. Tbilisi and Moscow stated many times that the meetings in this format have produced positive results in restoring cooperation.
