Russia and Georgia have common interest in combating international terrorism in Chechnya and Abkhazia. Russia's ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Georgia Vladimir Gudev told this the Georgian parliament on Tuesday. Meeting Vakhtang Rcheushvili, vice-speaker of the Georgian parliament, the Russian ambassador noted that the events taking place in Abkhazia cause Russia's concern. The bandit formations which are making their way from Abkhazia to Kabardino-Balkaria may pose a threat to Russia' security, stressed Gudev. At the same time, meeting the press, the Russian ambassador ruled out the possibility of Abkhazia using military hardware from the Russian base in Gudauta. In the near future, progress is expected to be made in drafting a new framework agreement between Russia and Georgia, Gudev told RIA Novosti.
