Russia and Georgia discuss prospects for renewal of transport link

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Special Representative of the Georgian Prime Minister for Relations with Russia Zurab Abashidze discussed July 8 by telephone the re-establishment of transport links between the two countries, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports.

"In the development of the discussions held at the meeting in Prague on 5 June this year, a further exchange of views on the establishment of the agreed areas of bilateral cooperation, including in the field of transportation has take place. Oher issues of mutual interest have also been touched upon," RIA Novosi quotes the statement of the Ministry.

Regular direct flights between Russia and Georgia were cancelled in 2006 after the deterioration of relations between the two countries, restored in 2008 for a short time and then interrupted again after the events of August 2008. Currenly only charter flights operate between Russian and Georgia.

In early June Prague hosted the third meeting of the representatives of Moscow and Tbilisi since the rupture of diplomatic relations between the countries. The format of the meetings does not provide for consideration of policy issues, they are focused purely on specific questions of the resumption of trade, transportation, cultural and humanitarian cooperation.
