Switzerland to represent Georgia, Russia

The foreign ministers of Georgia and Switzerland say Switzerland will represent Tbilisi's diplomatic interests in Moscow _ and vice versa.
Georgia and Russia severed diplomatic relations in the wake of August's five-day war that began when Georgia tried to regain control of a Russian-backed separatist region.
Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey said Monday she finalized an agreement with her Georgian counterpart Grigol Vashadze on representation in Georgia. It parallels a similar agreement reached with Russia last month.
The arrangement, which will cover diplomatic and consular matters, is similar to Switzerland's representation of U.S. interests in Iran and Cuba.
