"In this area is active the leadership of the Republic, and in particular, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs", - said the head of state.
Tibilov emphasized that in 2013 South Ossetia would continue the policy of rapprochement and integration with Russia and would determine the prospects for further international recognition.
He recalled that in October of this year in Moscow had been held a meeting of the foreign ministers of Russia and South Ossetia, where had been discussed the strengthening of the position of the Republic in the international arena.
The president added that South Ossetian diplomats in recent months had established contacts with several countries and had obtained an understanding on their part in the recognition of South Ossetia.
