Tskhinval: Many countries are responsible for the Georgian attack on South Ossetia
Plenipotentiary Representative of President of South Ossetia on post-conflict settlement Boris Chochiyev is confident that soon the international community will admit Georgia's aggression against South Ossetia in August 2008.
According to IA "Res", Chochiev made this statement, commenting on the words of the French Ambassador Eric Fournier, that liability for an attack on South Ossetia in August of 2008 is on Tbilisi, as well as for the genocide of the people of the republic in the 20s of last century.
"Another thing is that many countries do not recognize this truth, because they are direct or indirect participants of aggression" - added Chochiev.
Chochiev also noted that France has already made several steps toward the acceptance of responsibility for the outbreak of the Georgian aggression in the region. "The only international instrument that helped to prevent bloodshed and to stabilize the situation at the moment was the Medvedev-Sarkozy agreement. And though the French foreign minister and ambassador himself Eric Fournier previously gave unobjective estimates to the war in August, now we can say that the truth can not hide indefinitely" - he added.
Earlier, Ambassador of France to Georgia Eric Fournier, speaking about the war in South Ossetia, said that Tbilisi will not be able to transfer the guilt for their actions against the people of South Ossetiato on someone else. "You can not rewrite history and to put responsibility not on itself. If you deepen, you must demand explanations from the Menshevik Republic, which in 1921 destroyed the Ossetian population, and not from France and another country. In this case, the real responsibility lies on the nationalism of both sides" - he stressed.
In turn, representatives of Foreign Affairs of Georgia pointed out that the words of Fournier require additional verification. "It's hard to give any estimate; yet we have spoken with the ambassador and ask why such a statement was made. It will be surprising if Eric Fournier has realy said something like that, and we are talking about a country, which has been a mediator in the Russo-Georgian war, and as a mediator in the establishment of the ceasefire agreement" - the "GHN" quoted the words of Deputy Foreign Minister Georgia Nino Kalandadze.
