    TBILISI, JANUARY 16, (RIA NOVOSTI) - Georgia pledges to do its best to settle the problem of Russian military bases to be withdrawn, says its Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Tbilisi is glad to see nascent positive trends in Georgian-Russian relations-the involved and highly sensitive military-political field being no exception. To bring bilateral relations back to normal and further improve them, Georgia is willing to do its utmost for the settlement of problems stocked over the years. The prospects for Russia to dismantle its military bases in Georgia are no exception, Temur Mikeladze, Ministry of Foreign Affairs chief of information and public relations board, says in a statement circulated today.

    Only two of Russian military bases in Georgia remain for today: in Batumi, seaport and capital of the autonomous republic of Adzharia, and in Akhalkalaki close to Tbilisi.
