The organization on safety and cooperation in Europe (OSCE), through the Swiss representation in Vienna, has addressed to South Ossetia with the offer of cooperation. It has been reported to the news agency "Res" by the Plenipotentiary of the President on postconflict settlement Boris Chochiev. However, as he has said, South Ossetia is not ready to take such step, till the Georgian aggression against South Ossetia in August, 2008 has been assessed by this organization «Till the August aggression is estimated, we will not cooperate with OSCE. Certainly, we are not going to build the Great Wall around South Ossetia - we are transparent, but we are against cooperation with OSCE. Not because we hide something. But this international organization should meet its obligations», - Chochiev has emphasized. He has noticed that OSCE has broken the mandate concerning informing the international community about the events in a zone of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict at that time. «They could not prevent the aggression, but on the contrary promoted to create a smoke screen over preparations of Georgia for the war», the Plenipotentiary has underlined.

Special indignation causes that fact that the Mission of OSCE in Georgia has not even prepared the report for discussion of the August war at the constant council of OSCE «At the moment of the war beginning the head of the OSCE Mission Gregorzh Mikhalsky was in Tskhinval. One could not say that they have not been informed, but the double standards policy has been activated in this case», - Chochiev has noted. In conclusion, Chochiev has once again underlined that South Ossetia is not against the OSCE activity here but it is necessary, that this organization has considered the results of the August war and confrontation in 2004, it has to publish the reasons why the international community has not been informed about the preparation of Georgia for intrusion into the territory of South Ossetia.
