The official delegation of South Ossetia took part in the celebrations held in Tiraspol, on the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. The delegation has included the Foreign Minister David Sanakoev and the head of the parliamentary committee for foreign policy Igor Kochiev.

As David Sanakoev has told the news agency "Res", the South Ossetian delegation attended the festivities as guests of honor.
"We were very warmly received. In Tiraspol we held a series of meetings with representatives of the executive and legislative branches of the government. In particular, we have met with the President of the PMR Yevgeny Shevchuk, with the leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR. We discussed issues of further cooperation between our countries, the expansion of our contacts. We assured each other of the intention to further developing the friendly and partnership relations,"- said the Foreign Minister.
Sanakoev has noted that the Transnistrian colleagues submitted the revised draft agreement on cooperation between the two countries to be considered by the South Ossetian side.
The Foreign Minister has added that during the meetings were reached concrete agreements that children from Transnistria could rest in South Ossetia and South Ossetian children could get acquainted with the fraternal republic.
They discussed the issues of cooperation in the cultural sphere, in the sphere of tourism. But now, given the situation in Ukraine, there are some difficulties that prevent us to start implementation of our agreements.
Sanakoev has added that members of the South Ossetian delegation also met with the Commissioner for Human Rights of PMR Basil Calco and the head of the Constitutional Court of the PMR Oleg Kabaloev.
The Transnistrian side initiated the 2015 Council of Ministers of the PMR, South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
In turn, the head of the Foreign Affairs Committee Igor Kochiev has also emphasized that the celebrations in Transnistria were held at a high level, attended by guests from friendly Abkhazia and Russia.
"We met with colleagues from the Supreme Council of the PMR, gave them greetings and words of support on behalf of the Parliament Speaker Anatoly Bibilov. During the meeting the sides discussed issues of bilateral cooperation and the establishment of new ties, given that in South Ossetia is already running the new parliament, "- said Kochiev.
According to him, it was also discussed cooperation in the framework of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the Community "For Democracy and Human Rights."
