Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend E.Huseynov / Tbilisi will re-establish relations with Russia after the Presidential elections in January, said the former President of Georgia, Eduard Shvernadze. "I think that after elections the Government will begin taking concrete measures to improve relations with Russia," Shvernadze reported to Trend by telephone from Tbilisi on 14 November.
On 7 November the President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, accused the special service bodies of Georgia of belonging to the concerns in Georgia. The representatives of the Georgian government have repeatedly accused Russia of creating instable situation in the Country, especially through financing the demonstrations of the opposition. Moscow refutes all these accusations.
The Foreign Ministry of Georgia called three employees of the Russian Embassy in Tbilisi as undesirable persons. As a response, Moscow called three Georgian politicians as undesirable persons.
Shvernadze considers that it needs to re-establish the relations between Russia and Georgia, but he did not offer concrete way out for the complicated situation. Answering the question on the way out for the situation, he replied that everything depends on the results of the elections and practical steps will be made after the elections.
" Russia should understand that as long as the Abkhazian and South-Osetin issues annexed by Russia remain unsettled, it is impossible to speak of normal, good neighboring relations," Shvernadze said.
