Tskhinval and Tiraspol to lay a stone2010-08-18 15:50
South Ossetia will host the embassy of the Republic of Transnistria, as stated by Alexander Pukhayev, Transnistrian Moldovan Republic (TMR) spokesman. The fact shows that Tskhinval looks ahead to the future planning to build up relations with those who recognized South Ossetia's independence and helping countries that have no official status on their way to recognition. No doubt, a great number of unrecognized states is a challenge to the world community that has lost itself in all sorts of conventions, constitutions and provisions.
"The design is ready, the money is allocated, the territory for the future building is determined. By the 20th anniversary of the Republic Day Igor Smornov, the TMR president will come here to lay a stone in the foundation of the building", - Alexander Pukhayev said.
Despite a wide response and a wave of protest evoked by Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's recognition as a result of the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict worldwide everyone is skimming the cream of Russia's unprecedented act. Before Georgia opened fire in the direction of Tskhinval, embassies of Abkhazia and South Ossetia started official activities in Transnistria. Now the partially recognized republic is paying back the debt as part of "For Democracy and Rights of Nations" community. The opening of the Transnistrian embassy in South Ossetia has been rumored since 2009 when the TMR was given a building for its representation office.
Certainly this agitation around the states that have not been officially recognized started a short time ago, but the sovereignty issue is not a novelty. There are nearly 20 world countries that de-facto control their territories. Some of them are even acknowledged by some UN members. There are also UN members among them with a political weight that have problems with other members. Thus, the problem that is set before the unrecognized Caucasian republics is not so unsolvable. Besides, though EU's fear has a hundred eyes, they tactfully hide the Basque problem behind a sleek façade.
What prospects do Transnistria and South Ossetia have signing the protocol that suggests interstate security cooperation between two republics and the opening of their representation offices?
