Georgian Prime Minister addresses Russian government


"Unfortunately, we face a difficult reality today. We have restored bilateral trade-economic relations, but the chain of tragic events continues ," - Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili appeals to the Russian authorities.

The Prime Minister speaks about Russian-Georgian relations and states that the current situation undermines the prospect of regulating Georgian-Russian relations.

Giorgi Kvirikashvili names the death of Archil Tatunashvili and the process of transferring the body.

The head of the government appeals to the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation to take joint steps to overcome the existing situation.

" We have already stated before and confirm again that we are interested in achieving real progress in the Geneva International Discussion Process, for which I have confirmed the willingness of my personal involvement. We are ready for a direct dialogue with Abkhazians and Ossetians and will welcome the constructive approach of the Russian side in this regard. In case of political will, it is possible to take other reasonable steps.

Unfortunately, we face a difficult reality today. We have restored bilateral trade-economic relations, but the chain of tragic events still continues. This undermines the prospect of regulating Georgian-Russian relations. The last tragic example is the death of our citizen - Archil Tatunashvili in uncertain circumstances.

Despite the efforts of the Georgian authorities, the Catholicos-Patriarchate and the international community, his body has not been transferred to the family.
I appeal to the Supreme Government of the Russian Federation to realise the responsibilities in front of current and future generations to take joint steps to overcome this difficult situation, "the statement says.
