The President expressed his appreciation of the help provided by Dagestan to the people of South Ossetia during the first days of Georgia’s aggression. “We are friendly people and should do our best to establish peace in the Caucasus. Your visit here creates solid grounds for our further relations. The leadership of South Ossetia will do everything to strengthen the relations between our people.

In return, the Head of Delegation of Dagestan People’s Assembly Aitemir Satiraev stated that they were pleased to see the positive developments in the republic a year after the August aggression.

Eduard Kokoity conveyed his invitation to the President of Dagestan Mukhu Aliev to visit South Ossetia during the celebration of Day of South Ossetia’ recognition by Russia on 26 August. “This was a brave step supported by the Russian nation. Last year, Russia had shown that its opinion should be respected. The recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia was another proof of that. We should make all efforts possible to ensure stability in the Caucasus. The Caucasus is our common home and we will establish peace and order here”, stressed Kokoity.
