Georgia suspends trade talks with Russia
Tbilisi, Georgia, Jan. 30
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgia is suspending trade talks with Russia as they do not make any sense, Georgian Foreign Minister Tamar Beruchashvili told reporters Jan. 30.
Beruchashvili is on an official visit to the US.
She said that the Russian market is unpredictable.
"At present, we suspend a trade dialogue with Russia as it does not make any sense," she said. "Russia at any moment may impose an embargo."
Beruchashvili said that Russia continues taking destructive actions, including in the political sphere. A good example is the signing of the so-called "agreement on strategic partnership and integration" with separatist Abkhazia.
"Around 11,500 Russian servicemen are stationed in Georgia's separatist regions," Beruchashvili said.
