TBILISI, September 17 (RIA Novosti) -"We repeat once again that the Georgian authorities want to maintain good-neighborly, close relations with Russia. We are partners and ready to continue partnership with Russia on the strategic level," Georgia's National Security Council Secretary Gela Bezhuashvili said at a press-conference Friday.

He spoke about results of a meeting between the Russian and Georgian presidents at the CIS summit held recently in the Kazakhstan capital Astana.

"It was an open productive meeting, with a free exchange of opinions and views. Some questions raised a discussion which revealed a constructive approach to problems existing in Russian-Georgian relations," said Gela Bezhuashvili.

"We have promised Russia full support, both on the bilateral and international grounds, in the battle against terrorism," said Gela Bezhuashvili.

"Terrorism is our common enemy. Notwithstanding their origin, Chechen, Arab, Georgian or Russian terrorists are equally dangerous for both states. Therefore we are ready to join our efforts in the battle against this evil," stressed Bezhuashvili.

The Georgian side, he continued, is confirming its willingness to settle conflicts by peaceful means. "It is the principle that underlies our domestic and foreign policies and we are trying to consolidate the CIS on this issue," added Bezhuashvili.
