Comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia

Couldn't but draw attention to the latest attempts to define “the status of Abkhazia and South Ossetia” once again undertaken in Georgia. This time the issue of their “special status as part of Georgia” was discussed by a constitutional commission of the neighboring state.


The absurd idea about a possibility of a certain “reintegration” and coexistence of South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Georgia within one state is imposed on Georgian society with a persistence that deserves better application.

Comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia to South Ossetia International Information Agency

Q: Could you please comment on the situation around conditions of the arrival of Julietto Kieza, a famous Italian journalist and political figure, to the Republic of South Ossetia.


A: That’s right. Upon invitation from one of the political parties of the Republic, Mr. Kieza arrived to Tskhinval on January 23, 2017. Unfortunately, he faced certain problems while crossing the state border of the Republic of South Ossetia, as the receiving party had ignored the legal requirements pertaining to the entry procedures for foreign citizens arriving to the Republic of South Ossetia. The problem was solved rather fast, however the hosting party didn’t miss out the opportunity and tried to overblow a political scandal and shuffle off the responsibility for consequences of an incident that became a result of disrespect for the legislation of your own country to the MFA.
