2009-02-27 10:34

Tskhinval may renounce participation in Geneva Talks on situation on Caucasus because of political pressure the EU exerts on Belarus, claims the statement of the Foreign Ministry of South Ossetia , published at the South Ossetian State Committee on Information and Press site. - RIA Novosti.


"Political pressure exerted on Belarus is regarded in South Ossetia as an overt political blackmail, which in the inadmissible form of ultimatum makes Minsk to choose between the approximation with Europe and the right to make own decisions of the issues of Belarus' own sovereignty", the comment of the South Ossetian Foreign Ministry states.

"Evidently, these statements pretending to be the common opinion of all the EU member countries, are direct reflections of the EU highest officials' unwillingness to open eyes on the real situation", the Ministry notes.

On February 23rd at the EU Council meeting Karel Schwarzenberg, the Foreign Minister of the Czech Republic (the EU chair country) stated that recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by Minsk will put Minsk outside European context and will impede Belarus' participation in the Eastern Partnership program. This position was confirmed by Javier Solana, the High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP). His press secretary stated that the EU policy proceeds from the belief in the territorial integrity of Georgia and implies non-recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as international law subjects.
