Tbilisi: Georgian-Russian Border Temporarily Reopened

Georgian-Russian Border Temporarily Reopened

Civil Georgia, Georgia
Oct 11 2004

On October 10 the Russian side temporarily reopened its border with
Georgia at the Larsi checkpoint, which has been closed since the
hostage-taking tragedy in Beslan early last month.

The border remained opened for several hours only, in order to allow
citizens and trucks from both Georgia and Armenia to cross the border.

According to the Georgian Border Department, talks are currently
being carried out over the reopening of the border and these talks
include the active involvement of the Armenian side as well.
