The U.S. Department of State decided not to interfere in investigation of incidents at the border of Georgia and South Ossetia, as believes these are local and must be studied by the participant countries themselves.

"We were in contact with both the Russians and Georgians over the weekend. I think there were multiple attempts to reach officials on both sides. I can't say whether it was Bill Burns or Phil Gordon. I think it was probably a combination.

I think first of all, we're not sure that there was any evidence to support the original claim that there was an exchange of fire across the border, but we were in touch with both sides and to kind of check on mechanisms that have been put in place so that if you have incidents of these kind - this kind, it can be resolved at the local level as quickly as possible," said Philip Crowley, Assistant Secretary of State, at yesterday's briefing - ITAR TASS.

Previously the Minister of Defense of Russia stated the Georgian side had fired localities in South Ossetia several times. The Georgian side refuted these accusations and stated that on July 29th Nikozy [Georgian village] was fired form the South Ossetian side.
