On 1 of October during the meeting with UNDP Head Helen Clark the Minister of Foreign Affairs Maya Panjicidze stated that UNDP projects in Abkhazia can be realized in South Ossetia.


UNDP is, no doubt, important and useful agency of recognized value and merit. However, taking decisions of possibility for one or another international agency to fulfill its activity at the territory of sovereign state – the Republic of South Ossetia are authorized only competitive organs of state power of the Republic, but not Georgian foreign office.

After 6 years of war started by Georgia against South Ossetia it is obvious that the Republic, thanks to scaled and multifaceted aid of Russian Federation is able for successful realization of scaled projects of after-war rehabilitation and social and economic development. It is safe to say that the Republic henceforth will successfully tackle the issues of development without the participation of Georgian diplomacy.
