Georgia and Russia are likely to meet again in April for their next round of talks concerning Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Nikoloz Mchedlishvili, spokesman for Georgia's prime minister, told local media on Friday that the next meeting would be held in April, but he declined to dwell upon the exact time or place of the scheduled meeting.

"Our position has not changed," said Mchedlishvili. "We call for legalization of the Fsou and Roki tunnels' checkpoints."

The two tunnels are situated on the Greater Caucasus mountain range connecting Georgia and Russia.

Georgian and Russian negotiators met in Bern of Switzerland on March 9 and 10 for their first round of talks as regards Russia's WTO membership.
