Georgia's Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili has released another statement regarding Archil Tatunashvili's death. 

The Premier calls on the Russian Federation "to take joint steps to overcome this difficult situation. "
According to PM Kvirikashvili, August 2008 war left a deep trace on consciousness of Georgian people and Georgia -Russia relations. 
"Diplomatic ties have been terminated. The recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions by Moscow has deadlocked the perspective of establishing normal interstate relations. 
Now we have a choice - to meet this date with mutual accusations and sharp statements, or to take reasonable, even small steps to get our relationships out of this enchanting circle.
We have already stated before and again confirm that we are interested in achieving real progress in the Geneva International Discussion Process, for which I have confirmed the readiness of my personal involvement. We are ready for a direct dialogue with Abkhazians and Ossetians and we would like to welcome the constructive approach of the Russian side in this regard. In case of political will, it is possible to take other reasonable steps, too. 
Unfortunately, today we face a difficult reality. We have restored bilateral trade-economic relations, but the chain of tragic events still continues. This undermines the prospect of regulating Georgian-Russian relations. The last tragic example of this is the death of our citizen Archil Tatunashvili under uncertain circumstances in Tskhinvali two weeks ago. Despite the efforts of the Georgian authorities, Catholicos-Patriarch and international community, his body has not been transferred to the family so far," - the statement, released by the PM Kvirikashvili, reads. 
The Premier urges the Russian Federation "to realize the responsibility before the current and future generations and take joint steps to overcome this difficult situation."
