(Tbilisi, June 10, Civil Georgia) – Russian delegation led by Chairman of Duma Council Committee on CIS Affairs Boris Pastukhov arrives in Tbilisi on June 10.
Russian delegation will renew talks with the Georgian side concerning the framework agreement between Georgian and Russia. The talks were suspended in April because of the incident in Georgian controlled Kodori gorge, breakaway Abkhazia, when the Russian troops landed in the gorge without notification Georgian side.
Foreign Affairs Minister Irakli Menagarishvili leads the Georgian delegation on the talks.
Georgian and Russian sides signed a framework agreement about friendship, peaceful relationship and cooperation on November 3, 1994. Georgian Parliament ratified the document but Russian Duma Council failed to reciprocate.
At the moment new agreement is being drafted by the Georgian and Russian sides.
