Next Meeting over WTO Expected in April
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 11 Mar.'11 / 18:28

Georgian and Russian negotiators are expected to hold next meeting to discuss Moscow’s WTO bid in April, although no exact date is yet known, the Georgian PM’s spokesman, Niko Mchedlishvili, told Civil.ge on Friday.

He declined to discuss details of the meeting, which was held between the negotiators in the Swiss capital Bern on March 10.

Georgian PM’s senior aide Tamar Kovziridze and Deputy Foreign Minister Sergi Kapanadze participated in the meeting with the Russian negotiators in Bern.

The meeting was held with the facilitation of the Swiss side, which acts as a diplomatic mediator between the two countries after Georgia and Russia cut diplomatic ties following the August, 2008 war.

Washington was “very proactive in encouraging” Russia and Georgia to sit down for Swiss-mediated talks in Bern, but U.S. officials are playing no role in the talks, The New York Times reported quoting a senior U.S. administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
