    TBILISI, April 6, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - On Tuesday, Georgian Attorney General Irakly Okruashvili, Georgian Interior Minister Georgy Baramidze and the Georgian minister of state security will leave for Moscow to meet their Russian counterparts. Then they will fly to Kiev to attend a summit of CIS law enforcement bodies.

    "During the meeting in Moscow the daily cooperation of the law enforcement bodies of Russia and Georgia is expected to be discussed," Mr. Okruashvili told journalists in Tbilisi.

    Mr. Okruashvili did not rule out that issues dealing with detention and extradition of people under investigation would be considered during the Moscow meeting as well. Mr. Okruashvili also stressed that the Kiev summit was very important for the countries concerned.

    "The fight against terrorism and the drug business are topical problems to be discussed at the Kiev meeting," said Mr. Okruashvili.

    "There is hope that the number of border violations will be reduced considerably due to the fact that Russian and Georgian law enforcement bodies are ready to agree on joint patrols of some sectors of our borders," Mr. Okruashvili stated.
