During the past period, the South Ossetian border guards detained 20 violators of the state border between South Ossetia and Georgia, said Deputy Presidential Envoy of South Ossetia for post-conflict settlement Khokh Gagloyty after a meeting of participants of mechanisms to prevent and respond to incidents (IPRM) in the Georgian village of Ergneti.
"18 of the 20 detainees were deported to Georgia after paying a fine, two are still under investigation," - said Gagloyty.
Deputy Envoy has noted that the participants in the framework of the IPRM have agreed that the security situation on the state border between South Ossetia and Georgia has been found to be satisfactory.
"It was continued to study the incident which took place in the area to the north of the Georgian village of Ditsi - said Gagloyty. - It was recorded the fact of crossing the border from Georgia by several persons in the uniform of riot police. The Georgian side acknowledged that they were representatives of the Georgian police and they carried out activities to search for a local shepherd. They have assured us that in the future they will act in the name of stability and border security. "
According to Gagloyty, the EU Monitoring Mission once again negatively characterized such incidents.
"We, for our part, have once again brought to the Georgian side our position that the protective structures are located in the territory of South Ossetia, and any approach to them is considered as the fact of violation of the state border line", - concluded Gagloyty.
