    MOSCOW, February 11 (RIA Novosti) - The issue of withdrawing Russian military bases from Georgian territory will no longer overshadow bilateral relations, Mikhail Saakashvili assured journalists on Wednesday.

    "Of course, there are certain agreements that we must implement in this concern. However, I believe the process will be less painful for both parties than before," Saakashvili remarked.

    Stressing the importance of talks that had been held with Russian President Vladimir Putin and top ministers, the Georgian head of state pointed out that Georgia's foreign policy reached out to Russia.

    "Our future depends on relations with Russia," Saakashvili underlined. He recalled that during their meeting Russian ministers smiled a lot. "I always do," Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov laughed.

    In the course of the visit by Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvilli to Moscow the parties reached principled agreements, which are to be implemented now.
