MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday urged all the public and political forces of South Ossetia to respect the decisions by top government bodies regarding the recent election results.
"On November 27, South Ossetia held the second round of presidential election. Having considered a complaint over serious violations committed by supporters of one of the candidates, the Supreme Court of South Ossetia declared the election results invalid. In this connection, the republic’s parliament set the new election date for March 25, 2012," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"Moscow is closely monitoring the situation in the friendly neighboring state. We're interested in this young republic keeping a quiet and stable situation, and political processes developing solely in the legal fold."
"To this end, it is necessary that all the public and political forces respect the decisions by top government bodies made in accordance with the law," Russian diplomats underlined.
