RSO MFA: Another Provocation of Georgia against the background of Geneva Discussions

"Neither the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (MFA) of RSO nor district administrations had received any official notifications or requests from the Georgian side or international organizations in relation to any planned actions or delivery of humanitarian aid to the territory of South Ossetia", stated Alan Pliev, Deputy MFA.
According to him, the intentions of Georgia to attach political implications speak for the fact that the needs of the local population hardly cause any interest among Georgian authorities. "It is more important for them to fuel tensions between the sides, moreover, there are consultations ongoing in Geneva, where along with security issues, the problems of interaction are discussed", said Pliev.
