Boris Chochiev: “Our goal is continue persuading the international community that it was not Russia’s aggressions against Georgia, but the aggression committed by Georgia”

On 20 May, the fifth round of the Geneva discussions on security in the Caucasus finished. The meetings were conducted in two groups: on security and on humanitarian issues. The discussions focused on one issue – security and guarantees of non-use of force by Georgia against South Ossetia and Abkhazia. According to the Head South Ossetian Delegation, the Special Representative for Post-Conflict Settlement, Boris Chochiev, it is problematic to demand any guarantees from the people who militarized Georgia and took part in the aggression.
“But, taking into consideration Russia’s recognition of our independence, the pressure Russia is exposed to by the international community and the information war unfolded in August 2008, our goal is to continue persuading the international communitu that it was not Russia’s aggression against Georgia, but the aggression committed by Georgia against peaceful population of South Osseitawith the support of many states, that is, the goal is call things with their proper names. And today, Georgia is not going to provide any guarantees, but is conducting NATO exercises in its areas adjacent to South Ossetia and Abkhazia. But if we keep demanding for elaboration of a document guaranteeing security, not one would do it for us”, said Chochiev.

The Deputy Speaker of the RSO Parlliament Tarzan Kokoity stated that the current Parliament has been wrongly rebuked for lack of professionalism and insufficient work.
“One should not put the question about which convocation of the Parliament worked more, or which had adopted more laws or vice versa. I would like to stress that all Parliament convocations had achieved a lot; and the Parliament was the body which led the Republic together with the president to independence. I would like to warn both friends and foes from comparing the work of one or another parliament convocation.
