RSO Parliament Presidium sitting

Wed, 19/08/2009 - 15:28

A sitting of the RSO Parliament Presidium chaired by Stanislav Kochiev, the Speaker, took place. The sitting was opened by Stanislav Kochiev who insisted that local media is informed on a quarterly basis about the MPs’ attendance. Then, the MPs proceeded with discussing the agenda.
The first point for discussion was the Law “On ratification of the 1st additional protocol to the Treaty between South Ossetia and Transdnestria on friendship and cooperation signed in Tskhinval on 16 June 2009”. Yury Dzitsoity, the Parliament vice-Speaker spoke on the issue. He stressed that despite the fact that Transdnestria had not recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia “we will continue our cooperation, both at political and economic levels, as well as in other spheres.” It was decided to ratify the Treaty at the next session of the RSO Parliament.

The second issue on the agenda was the RSO Law “On ratification of the Treaty between the RSO and RF on joint protection of RSO state border” signed in Moscow on 30 April 2009.” After a long discussion, it was decided to postpone its further consideration since the MPs had questions to some points in the Treaty.
The gathering listened to the report of a group of MPs who had a visit to the villages of Sinagur and Karzman in Djava district of South Ossetia. It was stressed that medical care for the population leaves much to be desired, that is, there is practically no medical care. “Construction of the hospital is delayed. It was started two years ago but then it was suspended and it is unclear when it will be finished. There is no supply with medicines, no medical staff. In order to revive these villages, it is necessary to open medical points there and provide them with ambulance vehicle”.
Additionally, the visit focused on issues related to economic situation and agricultural sector. The visiting MPs had talked to local residents to find out the most vital problems in these villages, and primarily those related to social welfare. These are problems which remained unsettled since early 1990s. It was decided to inform relevant structures to ensure that they take necessary measures.
