22 March 2010 [22:40] - TODAY.AZ
A common customs area between Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus will not change trade relations between Georgia and Russia, Georgian Foreign Minister Nino Kalandadzesaid said.

She said that trade relations with Russia are possible on a certain level and if there is interest Georgia will not interfere. Regarding bilateral relations, talks of resuming trade relations are not on the agenda.

"This issue will not be on the agenda until we have diplomatic relations," Kalandadze said.

Regarding the possible entry of Georgian wine and the Borjomi water to the Russian market, she said that Russia put an embargo on these products.

"The decision was taken by Moscow unilaterally and the removal of the embargo is possible if Moscow has such a desire. The Georgian government believes that after the establishment of the common customs area between Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, Georgian products will enter the Russian market despite the bans," Kalandadze said.
