A meeting of working groups held at the South Ossetian-Georgian border

On 3 September, a preparatory meeting of the working groups within the frames of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) was held at the South Ossetian-Georgian border. As the head of the South Ossetian Delegation Merab Chigoev underlined, “official meetings were suspended upon the initiative of the South Ossetian side due to unsettled issues of the meetings’ presidency and the fate of South Ossetian citizens detained by Georgian special services”.
”These are three citizens who were abducted in October 2008 from their villages in Tskhinval and Znaur districts. No progress in these issues induced our decision to suspend our participation in official meetings. Nonetheless, with the repeated addresses from the Co-Chairmen of the Geneva discussions and the appeal of the Russian MFA, we resumed these contacts but in the format of preparation for official meetings”, said Chigoev.

David Sanakoev, Human Rights Commissioner of South Ossetia
It has been a year since Georgia’s treacherous attack against our state, since the horrific events shocking the whole world. As a results, we have been recognized, and I can tell now that South Ossetia is not a part of Georgia any more and it will never be again. Despite all difficulties which we encounter on our path to development of our statehood, the Republic had achieved certain success in the reconstruction of the economy destroyed by the war. Certainly, we still have to accomplish much more and for this, we need consolidation; this will ease and speed up the processes of our Republic’s revival.
