South Ossetian Foreign Minister Dmitriy Medoev’s Interview to Sputnik-South Ossetia IA

— Mr. Medoev, did you expect your appointment as the Minister of Foreign Affairs or in other words, was there any agreement between you and the President during the presidential campaign?

— I had no agreements either with the President or with anyone from his team. I purposefully participated in the election campaign as a member of a presidential candidate’s team. Positions and career were the least of my concerns – one had to be result-orientated and thus we gained a fair and merited success. It was a natural decision for me, as there is no secret that yet in 2011 I supported this candidate and even today I believe that unless the famous events disrupt the electors’ choice, it would have been Anatoliy Bibilolov, who would have become the President. Neither before, nor later have I changed my political orientation. I have always considered upholding national interests as the main thing in my work.
