Russian Minister: Moscow to resume agricultural imports from Georgia

09.12.2012. (Hvino News) Moscow is ready to resume agricultural imports from Georgia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday.

“When they tell us Georgia wants to further improve relations, we are ready to discuss resuming imports of Georgian agricultural products as well,” he said. Russia banned imports of Georgian wines and two popular brands of mineral water in 2006 citing the poor quality of the products, a move widely condemned in Georgia as politically motivated.

The Russian foreign minister said a meeting of Russia’s and Georgia’s representatives would take place in the near future. ‘We’ll respond to the proposal by [Georgia’s Special Envoy for Relations with Russia Zurab] Abashidze and will hold contacts with him in the near future,” Lavrov said. Russian foreign minister also stated that Russia is ready to discuss restoring regular air link with Georgia.
