Russia on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, held talks on whether to resume Georgian wine imports after a seven-year ban, the first tentative step toward repairing the ruptured ties between the two ex-Soviet neighbors. Russia banned the imports of Georgian wine, mineral water, fruits and vegetables in 2006 amid rising political tensions in the run-up to a 2008 war. (AP Photo/ Shakh Aivazov, file)
