Georgia-Russia talks on Moscow’s WTO entry terms have moved to the stage of discussing “very serious concrete matters on substantive issues, which in itself is a positive step,” Nino Kalandadze, the Georgian deputy foreign minister, said on Monday.
The Georgian and Russian negotiators concluded second round of the Swiss-mediated talks on April 29 and agreed to continue talks in late May.
“Talks and proceeding successfully,” Kalandadze said. “[Talks] are encouraged by the both sides.”
She declined to discuss the details, citing a deal with the Russian side not to speak about the concrete issues amid ongoing negotiations.
