Russian PM says he’s optimistic on relations with Georgia

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday, Aug 4, he looked optimistic about the prospects of bilateral relations between Russia and Georgia five years after a brief war between the two countries.

“In this regard, I’m a total optimist. I’m convinced that everything will be fine. Our nations aren’t enemies,” Medvedev said.

“Of course, the conflict didn’t help but it wasn’t based on deep-running disagreements. Again, that was a criminal mistake of certain leaders. But these days the situation is indeed a bit different. The country’s new leadership that was brought in by the political and constitutional reforms is taking a more pragmatic stance… We welcome that,” Medvedev said.
