The situation at the state border between South Ossetia and Georgia, as well as security issues in the areas adjacent to the state border have been discussed today in Ergneti during the 38th meeting in the framework of the mechanisms for preventing and responding to incidents (MPRI).
As reported on the results by the head of the South Ossetian delegation Khokh Gagloyty, have been studied in detail the incidents that have occurred since the previous meeting.
"In particular, was discussed the act committed by a group of unknown persons on October 12 near the South Ossetian village of Mugut and the Georgian village of Dvani", - he said.
The unknown persons, according to Gagloyty, penetrated into the territory of South Ossetia by about 20 meters and installed the wooden cross there.
"We have promptly notified the EU Monitoring Mission, expressing the utter rejection of the deliberate action that means that the state border of South Ossetia has been deliberately violated. We have learned that the Georgian priest through the Georgian media called for building a temple on this particular spot", - he said.
The South Ossetian side "has appreciated highly" the speech of the new head of EU observers in Georgia Toivo Klaar in the Georgian media, who has called the incident dangerous and unproductive.
" We have no doubt that the perpetrators of this action were politically motivated. There was no any religious or moral motivation in this act "- underlined Gagloyty.
Today the new head of EU observers in Georgia Toivo Klaara was introduced to the participants of the meeting. The South Ossetian side expressed the hope that the level of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia would remain at the same professional level with the appointment of the new head.
