During the last days there were of plenty of statements made by the Georgian authorities for mass-media to express their ‘deep concerns’ about resumption of fencing works along the state border line of Republic of South Ossetia.


Georgian authorities realize that their groundless claims on territory South Ossetia are hopeless, therefore their reaction on everything done by authorities of South Ossetia both in internal or external policy is very painful. Having wide diplomatic possibilities, they continue to accuse South Ossetia and present to the International Community information that is handy for Georgia.

This speculative announcements made by the Georgian leadership, representing Georgia as a victim, became traditional and awaited. Claims of Georgian leadership for territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is their only inheritance from Soviet past. Georgian leadership, cursing Soviet era in the history of their nation, refuse to realize that by denouncing of all the state acts, adopted since 1921, Supreme Council of Georgia abolished all legal grounds for South-Ossetian Autonomous Oblast be part of Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Republic of South Ossetia announces that works on border line arrangement on sovereign territory of RSO are carried out by relevant border services of an independent and recognized Republic of South Ossetia. Any informational or other kind of influence on this issue is considered to be interference into internal affairs of a state and is condemned by the International Law.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Republic of South Ossetia recommends Georgian officials to put up with the existing realities and together with South Ossetia work on border line delimitation for benefit of both nations.
