Georgia will not back down from its position over Russia's WTO entry terms, President Saakashvili said in an interview with Reuters on October 27.
"We will stick to our principles for as long as it takes," Saakashvili said.
The Georgian president was speaking with Reuters on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.
Georgia says that it is not against of Russia's WTO entry, but under the condition that Moscow makes border crossing points in breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia "transparent".
"We still do not see much will from Russia to reach out to us," Saakashvili said. "We are ready for serious, meaningful talks about the issues but we have certain issues that cannot be overlooked and cannot be overcome by neglect."
