“During the conversation with Mikheil Saakashvili, the Russian president turned attention to the unacceptability of inflaming conditions in the region, and underlined the need for continuing negotiatings with all the parties involved,” the Kremlin said.

The Kremlin has described the meeting between the two presidents in its press release as “a working contact.”
