Georgian Foreign Ministry Misinforms Its People

The Georgian leadership has once again misinformed its citizens regarding the outcome of the last 13 round of Geneva talks, says the head of the South Ossetian delegation to the Geneva discussions Boris Chochiev.
As the press service of the South Ossetian President's Plenipotentiary reports, the Georgian Foreign Ministry released a statement where the Georgian side announced its "heroic success".
"The Georgian authorities have no support among their people and, being afraid to tell the truth, they tried to present a wishful state of affairs", the press service quotes the official.
"The statement is aimed at misinforming the Georgian people. We could have expected this, since the Georgian delegation to the Geneva discussions failed to defend any of the issues discussed. The representative of Saakashvili regime, one of the authors and developers of the plan "Clear Field", Bokeria and members of his team, when they had nothing else to say in response to the South Ossetian side's readiness to return residents of Leningor district of South Ossetia to their homes, showed their protest and ostentatiously walked out. By doing so, they showed that Georgia does not care about the fate of refugees, and for them it is an opportunity to manipulate the refugee problem for political ends ", says Boris Chochiev.
