MOSCOW, March 25 (RIA Novosti) - The next round of the talks on the terms of stay of the Russian military bases in Georgia will be held in early April in Tbilisi, Georgia's charge a'affaires in Russia Teimuraz Gamtselidze told RIA Novosti.

According to him, the Foreign Ministries of the two countries completed the three-day Moscow consultations on the Russian military bases on Georgian territory and the formation of a joint anti-terrorist center on their basis.

However, Gamtselidze did not comment on their results.

The Russian and Georgian delegations were headed by ambassador at large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Igor Savolsky and Georgian Deputy Foreign Minister Merab Antadze.

Moscow's new proposals on the Russian bases in Georgia fully comply with Georgia's ideas to this effect, Savolsky said before the consultations.

"Our new proposals drafted following the talks of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with the Georgian leadership in Tbilisi in February will be outlined at the meeting of the state delegations on military issues. In our opinion, these proposals take into account Georgia's views," Igor Savolsky noted.
