Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia: the opinion of the South Ossetian people is uninteresting to the NATO summitparticipants

Comment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia with respect to the statement adopted at the NATO Summit in Chicago

In a statement issued after the NATO Summit in Chicago May 21, 2012, member countries of NATO, supporting Georgia's aspirations to join the Alliance, appealed to Russia to "abolish the recognition of the Georgian regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states and to reduce the Russian military presence in these regions.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia has stated that this document, which was evidently adjusted to the Georgian audience, has a deliberately biased orientation. It is known that South Ossetia is not a "region of Georgia," and only through the intervention of Russia in August 2008 the people of South Ossetia were rescued from total annihilation during the perfidious military aggression of Georgia against South Ossetia. For nearly four years, the security of South Ossetia is guaranteed by the Russian Federation on the basis of the bilateral agreements. South Ossetian people express boundless gratitude to the Russian Federation, but it is obvious, that the summit participants are little interested in the people's opinion.
