Georgian FM: Fifth Round of WTO Talks with Russia Yields No Results
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Sep.'11 / 14:29

The fifth round of Swiss-mediated talks between Georgian and Russian negotiators on Russia’s WTO entry terms “ended without results” on September 12, Grigol Vashadze, the Georgian foreign minister, said on Tuesday.

He said he was not expecting “breakthrough” from this round of talks and added that negotiations would continue.

“Of course these are very difficult negotiations; the both sides know each other’s position; the Georgian side is permanently making compromises; the Russian side stands stubbornly on its fixated position like on Borodino [battlefield – a reference to 1812 battle between Russia and the invading French army],” Vashadze said, adding that he would not go further into details as “Georgia is so far observing” a gentlemen’s agreement between sides not to speak publicly about the negotiating process.
