Georgia assesses Kokoity's resignation "without malicious joy"
Georgian Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze said that Tbilisi assesses the current situation in South Ossetia as "depressing".
As reported by "Georgia News", Georgian Foreign Minister stressed that the leadership of the country is watching developments in Tskhinval after the resolution of the power conflict. "We have no malice, though there is a reason for this", Vashadze also commented Eduard Kokoity's resignation as president of South Ossetia.
The Minister also assured that the people of South Ossetia is trying to "get rid of the "Russian occupation" by all available means".
Recall, the South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity, under an agreement with the opposition leader Alla Dzhioeva, has officially resigned, according to RIA Novosti. "I'm going to fight for the further consolidation of the society and the strengthening of the statehood of South Ossetia", he said.
Kokoity stressed that the authorities of the republic managed to prevent the "orange revolution". "Yes, we've defeated the Orange Revolution. South Ossetia will always be with Russia, and we won't allow someone to soil our gratitude to Russia to please certain political ambitions; we gave this oath in 1774 when joined great Russia", the former head of the republic stressed.
"No political ambitions are not worth the bloodshed", he added gravely, noting that in South Ossetia the return of criminal was not allowed. "We know who was behind it all", Kokoity said.
Kokoity called on all citizens of the republic to show responsibility and come to election on March 25, which he called the day of the new political calendar.
