As Georgia Times wrote earlier on July 9 Trutnev had a meeting with RSO President Edward Kokoyty and his counterpart Vitaly Dzeranov at the time of working trip. As a result of the talks the partnership action plan was signed.
"We have geological information that might be passed over to the government of South Ossetia. They asked about it and we will take measures for this information to reach South Ossetia", - Trutnev said.
He also said the republican authorities had suggested considering a possibility of joint geological prospecting of resources.
"In 2009 it is impossible, but I consider it real to examine the issues in 2010", - Trutnev emphasized.
He believes it is a promising activity to start exploitation of lead, zinc and hydrocarbon deposits. "South Ossetian resources must be examined. We will prepare suggestions on geological survey to be transferred to the Russian government in 2009", - the minister remarked.
According to him both countries can jointly analyze the use of water resources and particularly South Ossetia's water potential for drinking water delivery to Tskhinval. The Russian minister also considers it possible to create trans-border natural territories.
