All disputed issues between Georgia and Russia should be resolved by peaceful means and Georgia will make every effort to achieve this goal, said Georgian Foreign Ministry Tamara Beruchashvili.
"There are no alternatives to a dialogue with Russia. Georgia announced that the way to resolve the conflict is exclusively peaceful. Consequently, all methods will be used to achieve this goal," Beruchashvili said in an interview to radio "Voice of America".
In August 2008, when Moscow recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, Tbilisi broke off diplomatic relations with Russia. However, representatives of the new Georgian government, which came to power as result of the parliamentary elections on October 1, 2012, set a course for the normalization of bilateral relations, considering it one of the top priorities of Georgia’s foreign policy.
