The agreement hasn't been reached yet, the VZGLYAD reports citing to Imedi.
Not so long ago a group of Georgian human rights activists and community figures arrived in Tskhinvali with the similar aim. They met with detained and convicted Georgians, kept in South Ossetia, and with relatives of missing and detained South Ossetians, kept in Georgia.
They were received by Eduard Kokoyty, the leader of South Ossetia, and he expressed readiness to pardon Georgian citizens but said he wouldn't do it under pressure of Georgian authorities.
Several days ago South Ossetia offered Georgia exchange the prisoners, captives and kidnapped, following "all on all" principle.
Merab Chigoyev, the South Ossetian President's deputy Plenipotentiary for Post-Conflict Settlement said 16 people, arrested for violation of the border, illegal carrying of weapons and other crimes are staying in South Ossetia.
He didn't mention how many South Ossetians are staying in Georgia and demanded for the exchange.
