TSKHINVAL, November 4 (Itar-Tass) — South Ossetia will not admit international observers on its borders. South Ossetian President Eduard Kokoity made this statement on Thursday, commenting on the conditions put forward for Russia on the path of its admission to the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
“We have repeatedly voiced this position, and are not going to change it. There will be no international observers in South Ossetia’s territory,” said the president.
Earlier, the republic’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Murat Dzhioyev also pointed out that “the claims of Georgia regarding controlling the border crossing between South Ossetia and Russia are unfounded and run counter to the Russian-South Ossetian interstate relations.”
Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organisation may be completed at the WTO ministerial meeting on December 15, Russian presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich told journalists on Monday. In addition, Dvorkovich said the draft documents “have no reference on Georgian customs control on the borders between Russia and Abkhazia, and Russia and South Ossetia. We mean only external monitoring.” “We continue to confirm that Russia recognises the sovereignty of Abkhazia and South Ossetia,” the RF presidential aide indicated.
