Comment of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia expresses concerns over the statement of Mikhail Saakashvili, which he made on January 25, live on channel Pervi Informatsioni Kavkazski.
When speaking in the European parliament recently, Saakashvili announced his peaceful intentions and refusal to use military force against South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Now, he says that "war is not over." The recent visit of Mikhail Saakashvili to Washington and his meeting with U.S. senators who promised to "provide Georgia with defensive weaponry in order to enable it to defend against Russian occupiers" also does not comply with his statement that Georgia would not use force to resolve conflicts, moreover that the same statement, word for word, Saakashvili made a few hours before the start of the military aggression of Georgia in August 2008.
