Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia: Only removing of the Georgian police post to its original location can protect the local population from recurrent tension

Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia in connection with placing the Georgian police post in the village of Zardiantkari

June 29, 2012 the Interior Ministry of Georgia placed a police post a few hundred meters closer to the state border of South Ossetia- in the village of Zardiantkari (Georgia), which is located opposite the South Ossetian village of Khelchua. This caused great tension among the people of the Ossetian nationality, living in this village.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia is expressing its concern by the desire of the Georgian side at any price to destabilize the situation in the immediate vicinity of the border. Georgia's military build-up, aggressive rhetoric of its leadership against South Ossetia, the constant provocations in the border areas indicate that the Georgian authorities continue to focus on deliberate escalation of the situation and are harboring revenge plans.
