Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb. 22 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
If the U.S side shows interest, Georgia's Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze does not rule out launching of negotiations to use the Georgian transit corridor for transportation of cargo to Afghanistan.
Perhaps, this issue will be discussed during U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke's visit to Tbilisi, Kalandadze said at a briefing today.
She stressed that this issue has not been broadly discussed at this stage. If the United States and NATO demonstrate interest, formal negotiations will be launched.
Regarding the visit of Richard Holbrooke, who arrived in Georgia on Sunday, the main themes of the talks will be security and the democratic processes in the country processing from the current situation, Nino Kalandadze said.
"His visit demonstrates how successful Georgia and the United States coperate", deputy minister said.
According to her, it is also very important how U.S special envoy will assess the level of Georgian military men's training to be sent to Afghanistan.
