Georgia officially refused to participate in the regional 3 + 3 format, which would have entailed its economic partnership with Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkey, Iran and Russia.
“Tbilisi will not consider the possibility of participating in any formats that include Russia until it ends the occupation of the regions of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali and recognizes the territorial integrity of Georgia”, the country’s Foreign Ministry has repeatedly stated.
The final refusal was announced during an online meeting on November 24 between representatives of the ministries of foreign affairs and transport of Georgia and Russia.
