Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili told reporters Friday Georgia would do its part to ensure the safety of the games, which will be held in the resort city of Sochi, a few miles from the border between Russia and the disputed territory of Abkhazia.
"The Georgian side will provide maximum assistance; we should ensure that no incident takes place during the Olympics," Ivanishvili said.
Georgia and Russia have been at odds over the status of Abkhazia, and fought a brief war over the territory in 2008. Russia's RIA Novosti news agency said Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili had urged a boycott of the Sochi games, but the rhetoric cooled after his party lost in last October's parliamentary elections.
