The Russian Foreign Minister pointed out that at the meeting of D. Medvedev with M. Saakashvili in St.-Petersburg on June 6 the parties discussed the need to continue the bilateral contacts. Let us recall that the meting of the Russian and Georgian leaders was tete-a-tete.
Later Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told about the content of the talks. That time Lavrov said: “It is important that the Georgian side would establish a mutually respectful dialogue with Sukhumi and Tshinvali on the basis of fundamental principles, which have been agreed as a basis for settlement of such conflicts, observing the agreements already achieved within the framework of the negotiation mechanisms”. He quoted to President D. Medvedev: “Artificial drawing of Georgia in NATO will cause a new escalation of the confrontation”.
It is noteworthy that immediately after the Petersburg Summit the Georgian politicians led by President M. Saakashvili again returned to the notorious anti-Russian rhetoric”, Peacekeeper.ru reports.
