Security issues on the border between South Ossetia and Georgia were discussed at the 70th meeting in the framework of the mechanisms for preventing and responding to incidents (IPRM), which took place in the village of Ergneti, - told reporters after the meeting the head of the South Ossetian delegation, State Adviser to the President of the Republic of South Ossetia David Sanakoev.

"The situation at the border remains stable, despite the fact that there had been certain violations," said Sanakoev. Over the past period, for illegal crossing of the state border were detained eight citizens of Georgia, two of them still remaining in the Republic and the rest after the relevant procedures were expelled to the territory of Georgia."

According to Sanakoev, the meeting also raised the issue of crossing of the state border between the two countries by law enforcement agencies of Georgia.

"We have firmly condemned these actions and called for Georgian participants to ensure that such actions will no longer be repeated - said Sanakoyev. - We have also identified the need for delimitation and demarcation of the state border in order to avoid the problems, first of all, faced by citizens living on the border line. "

Sanakoev has added that in the course of the meeting the Georgian side raised issues of detainees who are under investigation in the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia.

"We have noted that these Georgian citizens are kept in the same conditions as the rest of the detainees ", - Sanakoev said.

The head of the South Ossetian delegation has also noted that during the 70th anniversary meeting of its members, it was noted that the IPRM format is important, as it helps to address the issues that arise for citizens living in the border areas.
