The meeting is still planned, and the parties are awaiting a more opportune moment. Mikheil Saakashvili believed that the contacts with the Russian side should refrain until after Russia will not make the first steps towards' de-occupation of Georgian territory. " But according to an alternative point of view, the efforts of public diplomacy should not be terminated. This in itself is reasonable, but at the official level for the Georgian side, apparently, is now seen not too practical sense in this case – given the stated position of the Russian leadership, not deliberate decision to reconsider the recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Not to mention the fact that the present regime, Moscow is not going to negotiate. Nevertheless, the normalization of relations with Russia is necessary, but Saakashvili did not wish to place it, this was done more because it turns out that someone's climbing across Batko in hell ', correcting against his will that he blew it.
This and another conflict related to the Russian journalists. Three members of the Georgian-Russian commission on the crisis in the Caucasus have arrived in Tbilisi for a second meeting. The first took place a few months ago in Moscow. I must say that the initiative came from the Georgian Journalists and experts who disagree with the course of political leadership led by Saakashvili. This initiative was supported and the Patriarch Ilia II. But an entry visa at the airport was only chief RIA 'News' for the CIS and Baltic Alan concerned, and a member of the Public Council of the Russian Maxim Shevchenko and editor of Izvestia, Vladimir Mamontov, the authorities decided not to admit.
