MOSCOW, Oct 23 (Reuters) Russia has no plans to re-open air links with Georgia, which it severed over a spying row, Interfax news agency quoted Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying today.

Asked at a meeting with European businessmen if flights between Moscow and Tbilisi would be allowed to resume, Lavrov said: ''The answer is simple. For the time being we do not plan to do that,'' Interfax reported.

Russia cut air, road and rail links after Georgia arrested four Russian army officers last month for spying. They were released but Moscow has ignored appeals from Western governments to lift the sanctions and start talks with Tbilisi.
