A text of an agreement on the Georgian-Russian WTO negotiations has been already initialed by the parties and the document will be signed on Nov.10, Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadze said at a traditional briefing on Monday.

"It is important that this agreement has been reached and the process is nearing formal completion," Kalandadze said. "At the same time, it must be emphasized that it is important for the Georgian side that uncontrolled turnover carried out for many years will find the legal framework," she said.

Kalandadze said monitoring of goods at the border will be carried out by the companies selected by the Swiss side, which are equipped with the latest technology.

With regard to the concept of "border" in the agreement, then there is not such a word in the document, she said.

"But the geographical concepts mentioned in the agreement refer to the Georgian-Russian border. We are talking about all three intersections, including the Upper Lars. We consider it as our additional achievement," Kalandadze said.
