Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 5
A meeting between the presidents of Russia and Georgia, Vladimir Putin and Giorgi Margvelashvili, is possible, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a press conference in Basel, Switzerland, TASS news agency reported.
He said the Russian president has already voiced his position.
"There is nothing impossible in this world," the minister said, adding "and, in my opinion, President Putin has already answered such a question, saying that, if there is a need, if there is an interest in this, we can always find an opportunity."
On the night of August 8, 2008, military actions were launched on the territory of South Ossetia, Georgia.
Later, Russian troops occupied the city and drove back the Georgian military.
In late August, Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
In response, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Moscow and announced two unrecognized republics as occupied territories.
