The South Ossetian party put forward a condition at a meeting in the framework of the IPRM to remove the roadblock until 6am Friday

South Ossetia at a meeting of participants of the IPRM (Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism) in the village of Ergneti demanded from Georgia to stop provocations at the border and remove the roadblock in the vicinity of the village of Tsnelis, the head of the South Ossetian delegation at the meetings in the IPRM format, Yegor Kochiev, told reporters.

"The delegation of South Ossetia interrupted and left the meeting during the discussion of this issue, as the Georgian side did not go to a constructive dialogue. The participants of the meeting dispersed without even starting to discuss the General agenda of the meeting, " he said.
