The Answers of the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia Kazbulat Tskhovrebov to the Questions of “Golos Rossii” Radio Broadcasting Station

Question: How do you estimate the decision of the International UN Court pertaining the Kosovo status problem?
Answer. Notwithstanding the fact that decision of International UN Court is of consultative character, it creates certain internationally legal precedent. It is crucially important to underline, that the court marked only the Declaration of proclamation of independence itself. However, on my opinion, this decision may be considered as an indirect recognition of Kosovo independence, what will push other states to its recognition.
