Georgia, Tbilisi, March 6 / Trend N.Kirtskhalia /
Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili considers talks over a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin "premature". As Ivanishvili said in an interview with Imedi TV company, he personally "liked" a report of the Russian newspaper "Izvestia" that Moscow is preparing for his visit.
"But I want to stress that nothing unexpected will occur. We will not afford it. All we know, we tell the public. The report made me smile. If there is such an expectation in Russia, and if there will be improvement in the process, it will be very good".
As for the article, according to Ivanishvili, Moscow journalists write their materials based on specific information, although "today there is no reason" to believe that such a meeting could be held in the near future.
"My basic approach is that we definitely need to normalize relations with Russia. We will do everything for it, despite the fact that it annoys Mikheil Saakashvili," Bidzina Ivanishvili said.
He believes that the Russian side wants to change existing relations with Georgia today.
"Today, relations between our two countries are unacceptable and Russia also beleives that the current level of relations is not good," Ivanishvili said speaking about the details of visit of Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia to Moscow.
