Russia to simplify visa regime for Georgia

Russia will simplify the visa regime for Georgia, Trend cites Zurab Abashidze, special envoy of the Georgian prime minister for relations with Russia.

The official noted that the Verkhny Lars Customs Office will operate 24/7 until September to make freighting easier. Officials of the Road Agency and the Transportation Ministry of Russia will meet in the near future to simplify visa-issuing for Georgian companies. Georgia may transfer products to Russia by railway through Azerbaijan.

Georgian Foreign minister Maya Panjikidze said in Batumi June 28  that normalization of  ties with Russia was part of the national policy for the republic. Georgia will continue the process without reconsideration of sovereignty and foreign policy, she said.
