Georgia is Ready to Meet Russia's Requirements to Products Export-Minister

  • Tuesday, January 15, 19:35

Tbilisi. Georgia is ready to meet all requirements of the Russian side to Georgian products export, in conformity with WTO standards, Minister of Agriculture of Georgia David Kirvalidze told journalists after the sitting of the government last Friday.

The talks on return of Georgian wine and mineral water to the Russian market may be held till January 20. "It will be more efficient if the Georgian government officials participate in them - said Gennady Onishenko, Russian Chief Sanitary Inspector and the Head of the RF Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Service for Control in the Sphere of Protection of Consumers' Rights and Human Well-Being).

"We sent our message in response to the letter of the Georgian Businessmen and Winemakers' Associations as early as in December last year...We offered them to meet at the beginning of January. Let them come here in the second decade, till January 20. We can meet them," Onishenko said.

In its turn, the Georgian side has already sent to Rospotrebnadzor a list of the Georgian delegation's representatives, who will participate in the talks.

"We hope to receive the answer as soon as possible and  then settle the issue of visas so that the delegation would be able to leave for Moscow. The Georgian side is ready to meet Russia's all requirements, corresponding to WTO standards", the minister said, noting that "Georgian products are exported to other markets and they meet the mentioned standards everywhere.

David Kirvalidze stressed that it would be good if the Georgian delegation's visit was held at the same time, when Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II would pay a visit to Moscow. The head of the Georgian Orthodox Church will come to the capital of Russia on January 20 on the occasion of awarding him with the prize of the International Foundation for the Orthodox Peoples' Unity.  In spring 2006, after aggravation of the Georgian-Russian relations, Russian Rospotrebnadzor banned the import of Georgian wine and mineral water referring to the poor quality of the aforesaid products.

At the end of December 2012, Onischenko stated about his readiness to hold talks with Georgian wines and mineral water producers after the New Year holidays. After the talks, Rospotrebnadzor's specialists may inspect the plants.
