Comment of Kazbulat Tskhovrebov, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia, to South Ossetia International Information Agency

Terroristic attacks becoming usual around the world show that no one is protected against international terrorism. Terrorism has no borders and threatens the whole world. There is no secret that special agencies themselves can be involved in organizing terrorist acts. 22 terroristic acts were organized by Georgian special agencies on territory of the Republic of South Ossetia from 2005 till 2008. They resulted in 16 victims and 34 injured who received wounds of varying severity and even became invalids.

South Ossetia Foreign Minister Kazbulat Tskhovrebov Interview to Res IA



- Four citizens of the Republic of South Ossetia returned to their homes after 11-year imprisonment in Georgia. What work has been done these 11 years and what attempts has been made to release our citizens?


- Indeed, difficult 11 years have our citizens spent in Georgian prisons. All these years we in South Ossetia were claiming that those detentions and imprisonments had been unlawful and insisted on release. This issue was regularly raised by South Ossetia representatives within the Joint Control Committee (JCC) and at other levels. However due to the unconstructive position of Georgian party and non-availability to solute even those problems that are humanitarian, non-political, there were no serious progress on this front. Therefore I would like to express gratitude for the efforts made by our public representatives in general and by Lira Kozeva in particular. They were engaged in this case and sometimes have gained even better results than those achieved by officials of the Republic due to the non-governmental character of activity. In particular, they helped in organizing meetings between relatives of the detainees and officials and in transmitting applications to Georgian governmental agencies.
