TBILISI, June 10 (RIA Novosti) - Georgian President
Mikheil Saakashvili and opposition leader Levan Gachechiladze
have reached a preliminary agreement on the release of
opposition members detained during the course of recent
protests in the country.
The meeting took place late on Tuesday in the president's
Shavnabada residence outside Tbilisi.
"In my opinion, they [the detainees] will soon be with
their families" Gachechiladze told journalists.
The opposition has been holding round-the-clock protests
since April 9 demanding the president resign over his failure
to carry out democratic reforms and over last August's
disastrous war with Russia.
Gachechiladze also said that the protests, which have been
ongoing for two months, would continue.
