South Ossetian Foreign Minister believes Georgia makes Genovese discussions too political2008-12-19 12:20
Georgian side makes all issues considered at the Genovese discussions on security in the Caucasus too political, said Murat Dzioyev, South Ossetian Foreign Minister, to ITAR-TASS yesterday, as he commented upon the third round of the international consultations under the aegis of the UN, the EU and OSCE.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"For two days intensive work was carried out, but we have to state that positions of South Ossetia, Abkhazia on one side, and Georgia on the other side, are diametrically opposite, in particular, concerning the conflict-preventing mechanisms, - Dzhioyev stated. - The discussions were useful, but, unfortunately, our Georgian partners make the process too political, and we had to turn the attention of all the participants on this aspect ".
"The matter is, Georgian administration refuses to accept the fact: it was Tbilisi who performed the act of aggression this August. For two day we were discussing the measures to prevent new armed incidents, and all that time Georgian side insisted that South Ossetia and Abkhazia should bear equal responsibility for events in August and further on. We cannot share this view," the Minister stated.
In his view, Georgia must be responsible for the events in August. As he commented the statement of Georgian Foreign Affairs minister on "necessity to safeguard security in the occupied territories", Dzioyev said that South Ossetia, as well as Abkhazia, were officially recognized by Russia. "We don't think that our territories are occupied by Russia. Russian troops are deployed in the republics according to bilateral agreements, and we are sure that it were Russian troops who saved the situation this August ".
Dzioyev believes that the EU monitors, staying in Georgian territory, must properly react on the violations by Georgian side. "Today we have to state that we are dissatisfied with the EU monitors' work, as they just observe the situation and do not influence it", the Minister highlighted.
"Let me repeat that today's discussions were very useful, but, unfortunately, we failed to agree on many positions in order to give specific instructions to the international monitoring workgroups, - Dzioyev stated. - I think that at the next meeting these issues will be agreed. At least of it, South Ossetia is ready for cooperation with world community for the sake of stability in the region ".
