Margvelashvili Promises Constructive Dialogue with RF.
Tbilisi. Giorgi Margvelashvili, a representative of the ruling Georgian Dream coalition, who, according to the CEC early data,
won October 27 presidential elections, claims that Georgia has chosen a right vector in relations with Russia.
"We have shaped a right vector in relations with Russia, despite the difficulties that we have because of absence of diplomatic
relations with the Russian Federation," Margvelashvili stated on the second day after the presidential elections, October 28. At the same
time, he pointed out to the progress in relations with Russia, underlying the role of Georgian Premier's Special Representative for
Relations with Russia, Zurab Abashidze.
"There is also another format - Geneva Security Discussions, that need to be intensified," Margvelashvili stressed.
At the same time, he emphasized that Georgia should maintain the non-recognition policy with regard to its breakaway regions
- Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region (so-called South Ossetia).
"Incidents in Dvani and Ditsi (villages adjacent to the administrative boundary line with Tskhinvali region), where barbwire
fences had been installed, were very complicated. On the one hand, we have managed to focus on the population and, on the other hand,
to draw the international community's attention to that issue through correct strategy. We are trying to relax tension," Margvelashvili
"Those relations are very complex, but we would like to make it clear that there will be no aggression on our part and the
relations will be constructive," Margvelashvili pledged.
