No more JCC in South Ossetia

2008-11-01 10:52

On Wednesday, October 29 the Ministry for Special Matters of South Ossetia was officially dissolved. Ex Head of the Information and Analytics department of South Ossetian part of JCC Inal Pliev gave a telephone interview to GeorgiaTImes to explain the fact of dissolution of this establishment.

"There is no more legal framework for the activity of this ministry. New realia have come into life - now South Ossetia is a sovereign state. We are rolling back our work", - he said.


Pliev also emphasized that it had not been a power establishment but a civil one that provided for operation of South Ossetian part of Joint Control Commission (JCC) and resolved the problems of refugees. The ministry shutdown is due to the decision on dissolution of the republic's government that was signed by President of South Ossetia Edward Kokoyty in August after the war. And this will not affect interaction with the refugees, it is still in progress.

Inal Pliev expressed his resentment for Georgian peacemakers saying that they had committed an inexcusable betrayal shooting down their Ossetian and Russian colleagues with whom they exchanged greetings, discussed various topics and ate in one canteen before.

"JCC was a unique mechanism for negotiations, for making a peace agreement that would have saved a thousand lives. But now it is clear: what negotiations can be held with the criminals and murderers that cannot be trusted? - he assures.

If some time ago South Ossetia placed its hopes on peaceful settlement of the conflict with the help of JCC after the war this is simply out of the question.

It will be remembered that on June 24 1992 after the end of the conflict between Georgia and South Ossetia that lasted for 18 months Sochy agreement on principles of conflict settlement was signed. It was the time of JCC foundation represented by Russia, Georgia, Northern Ossetia and South Ossetia. The committee was authorized to perform its functions in cooperation with the group of war observers. And at the same time the compound forces for peace making and law enforcement were created by agreement between the parties.

All these 16 years the JCC activity was intensive. From time to time the parties organized meetings on neutral territories, usually in some European cities. However repeated negotiations for conflict settlement seldom led to unanimity, most often the parties got back with nothing.
