Concerning the results of the 31st round of the Geneva International Discussions
— Definitely it’s symbolic that the signing is scheduled for March, 18. A year ago the Crimea joined Russia. Today, despite the difficulties that arose during discussion, a finalized and modified (including by Russian departments) writing of the contract is going to be signed by Leonid Tibilov, the President of South Ossetia, and Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia. I am sure this signing will mark the next stage in development of interstate relations between our countries.
D. S. Kulumbegov, the Prime Minister of RSO, D. G. Sanakoev the Minister of Foreign Affairs of RSO, S. K. Takoev, the Prime Minister of RNO-Alania, E.K. Kargiev, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation in RSO, and other officials participated in the ceremony.
Each subject area that will be under negotiation on the coming 30th round of the discussions, which are planned for December, was talked over.
Current terms of bilateral cooperation and further activity of the organization in South Ossetia were discussed. The Minister marked the importance of the work carried out by the ICRC in the Republic and expressed words of gratitude for the implemented projects.
