Kremlin calls to cool down on Medvedev’s trip to Tskhinval

2009-07-15 18:17

The Kremlin asks not to dramatize Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Tskhinval, the capital of South Ossetia on Monday, July 13.


It was Moscow's reaction to the US Department of State's message that Dmitry Medvedev's visit to South Ossetia did not facilitate stability in the region, RIA Novosti reports.

"I believe real deeds are important for the "reset", not the statement", - a source in the Kremlin told the journalists.

It remarked that Washington's reaction to Russian President's visit to South Ossetia was rather predictable.

Back to the G20 London summit early in April 2009, the US representatives spoke about their disapproval of Moscow's decision to recognize South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's independence.

"This confirms their position, while we have a different one... Let's not dramatize the situation" - the Kremlin representative said.

As Georgia Times reported earlier, Ian Kelli, State Department spokesman recently reiterated Washington's call for Moscow to respect Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

As Kelly emphasized, Russia-US differences over Georgia's territorial integrity persist.

The Department Spokesman remarked that President Obama and Washington's partners in G7 as well as their allies in NATO and the EU support Georgia's territorial integrity and "have all rejected this recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia".
