Leonid Tibilov received the South Ossetian participants of the Geneva international discussions

On the eve of the 25th round of the Geneva international discussions on security and stability in Transcaucasia President Leonid Tibilov has received the South Ossetian panelists, led by Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy of the Republic of South Ossetia for post-conflict settlement Murat Dzhioev.
The Head of State has noted that "the topics for a discussion have already been outlined, and first of all, it is a draft document on the non-use of force, the signing of which the South Ossetian side has been waiting for a long time."
"Negotiations - it's a delicate process, familiar to all members of the South Ossetian delegation - said Leonid Tibilov - and we must always adhere to our positions, because, no matter who comes to power in Georgia, and whatever statements they make, their policy towards South Ossetia remains the same. "
Murat Dzhioev informed the President about the issues to be discussed in Geneva: "In the course of this round we must focus on a real document on the non-use of force, as the main work of the Geneva discussions is dedicated to this document." He has noted that it is planned to adopt a joint declaration of all participants of the Geneva discussions, that they are all committed to the principles of non-use of force. "The work on this document lasts for more than a year, but due to unconstructive position of Georgia we have not been able to adopt it," - said Murat Dzhioev.
According to the Presidential Envoy, in the course of discussions in Geneva will be considered the issues of prejudiced policy of Georgia towards the Republic of South Ossetia, and in particular, the works conducted by the border services of the Republic to strengthen the state border of South Ossetia, as well as the incidents in the border area.
Also, during the meeting, it was noted that the South Ossetian delegation in Geneva would once again raise the issue regarding the citizens of South Ossetia, languishing in Georgian prisons and convicted by the so-called Georgian justice, as well as the question of the missing South Ossetian citizens.
What about the humanitarian issues, here, according to Dzhioev, will be considered the possibility of supplying some villages in Tskhinval and Leningor districts of South Ossetia with irrigation water."
The Head of State has stressed that "the Geneva talks is the only political platform, where is articulated and defended the position of the people of South Ossetia, and we must make full use of this political arena for implementation of positive goals."
