May 1992 became the starting point for the creation of a number of ministries and agencies of the Republic of South Ossetia, the structure of the government of the Republic as a whole. On May 28, 1992, several key departments were created, including the Ministry of Foreign Relations (now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), the State Security Committee, and the Ministry of Information, Press and Publishing (now the Information and Press Committee).

The decision to create these departments was made at the session of the Supreme Soviet in 1992, at the same time the first Council of Ministers of the Republic was formed. It was at this session, on May 29, 1992, that a fateful document for the Republic was announced - the Declaration of Independence Act.

Today the Republic of South Ossetia - the State of Alania - is a recognized sovereign state. After the recognition and establishment of diplomatic relations, the range of issues to be addressed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has significantly expanded. But both then and now, the main task for it is to strengthen the foreign policy positions of the Republic of South Ossetia, the work to implement the foreign policy of our state, determined by the head of state, and ensure the national interests of South Ossetia.

First of all, this is building friendly relations with the states that have recognized the Republic of South Ossetia, as well as with the states that can potentially recognize it; creation of a favorable international image of the Republic of South Ossetia; development of cultural, economic and other relations with all countries that want to build equal relations with the South Ossetian state.

The ministries formed by the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of South Ossetia have undergone various structural changes over 29 years. These departments are currently performing their assigned tasks in the independent, recognized country. Looking back at the path that has been passed since then, we can say with full confidence that the decisions made were absolutely correct and fateful. Without them, it is difficult to imagine the modern history of the Republic, which we, according to the established tradition, have been counting from November 23, 1989.

The recognition of the Republic of South Ossetia is the result of the heroic struggle for decades
