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

Pertaining to the statement of Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze at the 73ed session of the UN General Assembly


Sick imagination of Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze again has led to innuendos. These insinuations, outlined by the Prime Minister at the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, have nothing to do with the reality and are aimed to convince the international community in improving relations with the Ossetians. Concern about reduce of the South Ossetian population which allegedly happened because of “the grave humanitarian, socioeconomic, and human rights situation” was equally cynical.
