Russia to lift ban on Georgian wine

Russia banned Georgian mineral water and wine in 2006 citing quality concerns; Tbilisi said the move was political.

    But now Moscow has agreed in principle to lift the ban.

    Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports on the latest sign of easing tensions between the countries.
