Sergey Lavrov – Our relations with the Georgian People have not ceased

Moscow wants to know the viewpoint of ordinary Georgians regarding relations with the Russian Federation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has stated. “Relations with Georgia have not ceased. I hope and am sure that the Georgian people will acquire a worthy President, interested in good neighbourly relations with all states,” Lavrov said. He stressed that Russia did not break diplomatic relations with Georgia, but vice versa. “We want to know how people see this,” Lavrov stated, adding that “the Georgian Government talked about preserving consular relations when it broke off full diplomatic relations.”
