“While that issue is being elaborated, it is necessary to receive the consent of all participants. When we reach that agreement, we will announce where the meeting will take place. We hope that it is a matter of not too distant future” said the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation.
Andrei Rudenko added that the chair intended for Georgia will remain vacant if Georgia does not confirm its participation. And when Georgia expresses readiness, it can be a full participant.
