Head of the international affairs committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev said he would meet with Georgian opposition lawmakers in Moscow on July 15 to discuss the current situation in bilateral relations and ways of overcoming the crisis.

"The discussion will concern the current state of relations and perspectives of overcoming the crisis, including through building inter-parliamentary dialogue," TASS cited the senator as saying.

Kosachev said the meeting will be hosted by the Federation Council. The Russian delegation will also include Kosachev’s first deputy chairman Vladimir Dzhabarov.
