According to US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, until Georgians see some credible moves, concrete moves regarding the occupied territories, the statements that come from the Kremlin do not carry a lot of weight.

“Georgians have heard the statements from the Kremlin many times. They would have a lot more credibility if they were followed up by actually withdrawing from Georgia’s occupied territories and reversing the recognition of Tskhinvali and Abkhazia and actually following through on the obligations that Russia committed to in 2008. I have not seen any step for that. In fact, there is still a flight ban, there are still restrictions on markets. So, it seems to me that until Georgians see some credible moves, concrete moves regarding the occupied territories, the statements that come from the Kremlin do not carry a lot of weight”, said the Ambassador.

The remarks come a day after the Russian Foreign Minister said Russia was ready for a normal life with Georgia.
