Another videoconference of participants of the South Ossetian delegation at the Geneva international security discussions in Transcaucasia with the co-chairs and co – moderators of the discussions - representatives of the UN, OSCE and the European Union-took place on Wednesday, the office of the Presidential Plenipotentiary for post-conflict settlement reported.

As noted by the department, during the video conference there was a discussion of the situation in connection with the coronavirus epidemic.

"In this regard, the efforts of the South Ossetian authorities to prevent the spread of the disease, to provide assistance to socially vulnerable segments of the population, in particular to pensioners, were noted with satisfaction. When discussing the possibility of providing humanitarian assistance to South Ossetia by international organizations, South Ossetian participants reiterated that it could be accepted with gratitude, in case it is delivered to South Ossetia via the existing transport communications through the territory of the Russian Federation,” the press service of the Envoy said.

When discussing the security situation in the areas of the South Ossetian-Georgian state border, the need to withdraw the Georgian police post illegally placed near the village of Uista (Tsnelis) in the South Ossetian territory was again emphasized.

“As a factor contributing to the preservation of stability in the border regions, the presence of South Ossetian information marks and border fences on certain sections of the border was noted. South Ossetian participants drew attention to repeated flights over the border line of the Georgian aircraft. The conference participants agreed on the issue of continuing the search for further ways to defuse tensions in the region and ensure the non-use of force,” the Ambassador’s office explained.

During the videoconference, humanitarian issues were also discussed, in particular, ascertaining the fate of persons to be listed missing. All participants in the videoconference spoke out for continuing the dialogue in the format of the Geneva discussions, including using the potential of the IPRM, if possible.
