There had been preparations for Margvelashvili-Putin meeting - Vano Machavariani
20 October, 2014
"We were working for this. We wanted to hold a meeting between the Georgian and Russian Presidents with the participation of international partners. We had talked about it with Presidents and politicians of our partner countries, including of the USA’, Machavariani said in his interview with the ‘’Kviris Palitra’’ newspaper.
According to him, the meeting was not held because of the government’s reluctance.
"I’d refrain from discussing other details. Today the situation is different; it is more complicated now and it is difficult to organize a high-level meeting. However, if the partner countries will engage in it, some steps can be taken. This is necessary because Russia has decided to sign a treaty on the so-called integration with Sokhumi’, Machavariani said.
