RSO MFA calls on international community to pay attention to frequent provocations

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia pointed to inefficient implementation of functions by international observers who are responsible to ensure security of South Ossetia from Georgia in accordance with Medvedev-Sarkozy plan.
“The goal of these provocations is clear. They are meant to aggravate the situation and instigate our side’s response fire. This would be an opportunity for the EU monitors, who are silent now, to record the violation from the South Ossetian side and accusations against South Ossetia would follow. The South Ossetian side would not give this opportunity”, said RSO Foreign Minister Murat Djioev.
According to the Minister, “there was frequent necessity to draw attention of international community to increasing provocations committed by Georgian special services. These provocations might lead to a serious tension. Despite the presence of the EU military observers in the areas of Georgia adjacent to South Ossetia, fire was open from those territories at South Ossetia. Hence, on 24 March, the RSO Defense Ministry checkpoint in the village of Mugut came under fire from the nearby Georgian village of Dvani.”
